      Schimm Melissa Schimmelpfennig  

    Welcome to Third Grade! My name is Melissa Schimmelpfennig and I am so excited for another new year at Coal Mountain! This will be my fourteenth year in Forsyth County, and my sixteenth year as an elementary school teacher. I have taught third, fourth, and fifth grades. My husband Tad and I have two wonderful children who are Lambert High School alumni. Adison is a 2019 graduate of Georgetown University, and Brandt is a junior at the University of Tennessee. We have two very spoiled yellow labs, Lucy and Zoey. When not in the classroom, I enjoy reading, shopping, and traveling with my family. I’m looking forward to spending a special 3rd grade year with your child!

    Hi, I am Marcie Thurmond and I am excited for my 7th year teaching 3rd grade at Coal Mountain Elementary. I absolutely love working with my 3rd graders and have been doing so for the majority of my 20 years as an educator. My husband David and I have two grown children, Alex and Emily, who are graduates of South Forsyth High School. Alex is a UGA graduate working in Atlanta and Emily is a nursing student at the University of South Carolina. When I am not at school, you will find me and my husband, David, visiting many of the dog friendly spots with Lily our golden doodle. Teaching is my passion and my goal is to make 3rd grade a memorable and successful year for your child!
