School Phone: (770) 346-0040 Katie Baylin
Hi! I am Katie Baylin, and this is my fifth year teaching here at Vickery Creek! I attended the University of North Georgia and graduated in 2017 with a dual degree in Early Childhood and Special Education. I also have my Reading Endorsement. My favorite thing about being a teacher is helping students find a personalized learning style that they love and can be successful using. When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and family, traveling to new places, and reading. I am so excited for a wonderful school year!
180439 email@example.com Amy Campbell Hello, my name is Amy Campbell and I LOVE teaching at Vickery Creek Elementary! I am originally from Calhoun, GA and currently live in Forsyth County with my husband, Andrew. We both attended Georgia Southern University, GO EAGLES! I have a Master of Arts degree in Education and am also certified to teach Special Education K-5. I love to spend time outdoors, especially camping at the beach! I also enjoy playing tennis, cooking, crafts, games, and spending time with family and friends. I became a part of the VCE family 8 years ago and since then I have enjoyed growing and learning with my students and school community. 180406
Hey there everyone! I’m Ms. Gizinski or as most of my families call me, Ms. G. 😊 I live in Cumming with my fiancé, Thomas, and our children, Anna-19, Maggie-16, and Jayden-11. Currently, I’m spending a lot of time planning our fall 2023 wedding & honeymoon—and it’s so exciting!
Some of my other favorite things to do include traveling, running, spending as much time as possible in/near water & spending time with friends and family.
I grew up in Portland, Michigan and my family and I return to visit every summer, so we 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 my college career, and in May of 2002, I graduated with a Bachelor’s 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 I am considering working toward my goal of earning my specialist degree and possibly my doctorate in the near future.
I’m proud to say that this year will be my 18th year of teaching! I began my career teaching fourth grade in Florida in 2003 and then moved on to south Georgia where I found my love for all things kindergarten. Over my last 16 years here in Forsyth County, I have enjoyed teaching Kindergarten for 5 years at Silver City Elementary and somehow time has flown by here at Vickery Creek and this will be my 11th year of teaching as a VCE Viking! 😊
I am so excited to make this first year of school your child’s best beginning ever and I hope you and your child are just as excited!

Kelly Williamson Hi! My name is Mrs. Williamson. I am originally from Northwest Florida and moved to the Atlanta area back in 2000 to begin my career as an educator. I grew up in a family of educators, so school just seemed like a second home to me. I love working with children and watching them grow socially and academically. Each day is an exciting new journey. I truly LOVE my job!
When I am not working I like spending time with my family. I enjoy being at home, but I also love to take trips with my husband and bulldogs (they go everywhere with us). I also like to snorkel, ride bikes, dabble with photography and watch movies.
I am so fortunate to be a teacher at Vickery Creek Elementary.
