180302 firstname.lastname@example.org Charlene Baxley My name is Charlene Baxley and I am thrilled to begin my sixth year in kindergarten at Vickery Creek Elementary. At VCES I have taught fourth grade and kindergarten. I hold a Masters in Early Childhood Education and I have a dual certification in Special Needs Education.
Prior to beginning my journey to become an educator, I earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications from Kennesaw State University and I worked in marketing and project management in the private sector for thirteen years. My husband Walt and I live in Cumming. McClain, my son, graduated from West Forsyth High School in 2016 and will be a senior at Georgia Southern University this fall. My daughter, Mary Margaret, is a senior at West Forsyth High School. In my spare time, I volunteer with my children’s various extracurricular activities and at our church.
After being a proud VCES parent for over ten years, I am excited to continue serving in the Vickery Creek Elementary learning community as a teacher, and helping promote all of the great things happening here.

Hello! I am so excited to be joining the 2nd grade team as one of the virtual teachers! I’m thrilled to become part of the Vickery Creek family. I am originally from Alabama, where I taught 6th grade one year and 1st grade for eleven years. I took a break from teaching for a few years to stay at home with my son. He’ll be in kindergarten at VCE; I’m so excited that we’re going back to school together!
I earned my Bachelor’s from the University of South Alabama and my Master’s from Troy University, both degrees in Elementary Education.
My favorite thing about Georgia is the state parks; my son and I are trying to visit them all! We spend a lot of time hiking, playing catch and soccer, reading books, and exploring Disney +. I also enjoy baking, crafting, and running.
I look forward to meeting you and your child. I’m looking forward to having many fun learning experiences together!
180329 firstname.lastname@example.org Allison Gizinski Hi! My Name is Mrs. Gizinski or Mrs. G, and I am 39 years young!
I live in Suwanee with my husband Scott and our daughters, Anna, 16 and Maggie, 13.
I enjoy traveling & being with friends and family.
I grew up in Portland, Michigan and return to visit every summer, so my family and I can spend a lot of time with my parents, nieces, nephews, and siblings.
I was thankful to earn athletic scholarships to play softball & volleyball throughout college, and in May of 2002, I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education from Huron University in Huron, South Dakota. In July 2010, I graduated from Piedmont College with a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education.
I love to learn, and am considering working toward my goal of earning my specialist degree and possibly my doctorate in the next few years.
This year will be my 15th year of teaching, and 8th year here at Vickery Creek! 😊
I am so excited to make this first year of school your child’s best beginning ever!
