    Andrea Wild
    Hello parents and students! My name is Andrea Wild and I was born and raised in Ohio - GO BUCKS! I received my Bachelor's degree from Bowling Green State University where I played tennis all 4 years, and my Master's degree in Early Childhood Education from Kennesaw State University. I also have my Teacher Leader Endorsement and my Gifted Endorsement. I previously taught at Wilson Creek Elementary in Fulton County for 9 years before having the wonderful opportunity to move to Big Creek in 2015. It is crazy to think how fast these years fly by- time flies when you're having fun! Currently, I live in West Forsyth with my husband, Vitek, my stepson, Nicolas, our son, Benjamin, our daughter, Victoria, and our dog, Jax. We love spending time outdoors as a family, playing tennis, going to the movies, trying new restaurants, taking our dog on hikes, and spending our weekends on the lake! When I find some alone time, I also enjoy running, reading, and shopping of course. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you and the many memories we will make. It is going to be a great year!
