My name is Christine Baccari, and I am so excited to be teaching 2nd grade at Coal Mountain! I received my undergrad degree from Georgia State University and my Masters from the University of Georgia. I have been teaching for 29 years. I have taught Kindergarten, First Grade and EIP. I love teaching children the skills they need to be good readers! I worked at Daves Creek Elementary for 16 years and worked previously in Gwinnett County for 13 years . My husband, Bob and I live in the North Forsyth area and have 3 daughters. Ashley, Allie and Lauren. We spend our weekends watching Lauren play softball, gardening and spending time with family and friends. I am looking forward to meeting all of my sweet 2nd graders at Open House. We will have so much fun this year!

My name is Wendy Wells. I am on my 20th year of teaching elementary school (15 in Forsyth County) and on my 7th year here, at Coal Mountain Elementary. I have taught several grade levels in beautiful places such as Hawaii, California and Savannah, Georgia. However, Forsyth County is special to me because it is my hometown. My husband and I have two sweet children, Connor and Kyla. Connor recently finished 3rd grade, here on the Mountain, and is looking forward to starting 4th grade. Kyla will be four in August and is very excited to begin Pre-K. We live in North Forsyth and you can normally find us on the baseball field, cheering on Connor or spending downtime on the lake. I am looking forward to another year here and to meeting my new 2nd graders!
