Mrs. Amanda Barnett

Hello Miners! My name is Amanda Barnett, and I am so excited to be teaching 1st grade at Coal Mountain Elementary. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education at Midwestern State University and have been an educator since 2010. I have experience teaching Pre-K - 2nd grade in other Forsyth County schools. I grew up in Dallas, Texas, and my husband and I moved to Georgia in 2011. We love it here! We have two young daughters, who are also part of the Coal Mountain family. In my free time, I enjoy hiking with my family and gardening. I am looking forward to teaching 1st grade at CMES and creating a warm and welcoming environment for all my new students!

Mrs. Robin Hall

My name is Robin Hall and I am excited for my 10th year at CMES! I have a B.S. in Elementary Education and a M.S. Ed. with a focus on Elementary Reading and Literacy. This is my 19th year of teaching and my 8th year in first grade. I love helping children learn how to think deeply, become amazing problem-solvers, and achieve things they didn’t think possible. My husband and I have 4 kids and 1 dog. We love to spend time together, hang out with friends, and go for hikes. I am looking forward to another great year.

My name is Aquila Reyes, I am so excited to be part of first grade team again this year. I graduated North Georgia with a B.S. dual certificate in Elementary and Special Education, along with a Reading Endorsement. I also have an associate in Biology and Kinesiology because of my love for the STEM field. I have a passion for learning new languages and exploring other cultures and their history. Outside of school, I love to spend time with my family (all 5 dogs included!) and friends outdoors. I look forward to a wonderful year at CMES with my first grade miners!
