     adkins Laurie Adkins  
    Welcome Antelopes! My name is Laurie Adkins and I am beginning my 19th year of teaching! Kindergarten is the best place to be and I am so excited to return for another year! I have been married to my wonderful husband Eric for 16 years and we have two children; Cameron and Madelyn. Cameron is a freshman at West and Madelyn is a sixth grader at Riverwatch Middle. When I’m not at school, I enjoy playing tennis, running different races across Georgia and traveling with my family. I can’t wait to have a great group of antelopes for the 2021-2022 school year!

    hj Heather Jackson  
    Welcome Jellyfish! This is my 4th year teaching and my second year teaching kindergarten. Kindergarten is my dream job and I look forward to all the great memories we will make in the jellyfish classroom this year. I taught ESOL for 2 years before getting the privilege to teach kindergarten. I graduated from Athens State University in Alabama in 2017. I am originally from Alabama and moved here to Cumming after getting married to my wonderful husband Eric in 2019. I have a pet pug named Meeko and he is my pride and joy. When not at school I enjoy traveling and love anything Disney.
