    EB  Emily Bottoms  

    Hi! My name is Emily Bottoms and I am a 5th grade teacher at Coal Mountain Elementary. This will be my sixth year teaching on the Mountain, and I love being a part of the family here! I am from the Dawson/Forsyth area, and I attended The University of North Georgia for both my bachelor and masters degrees in education. I graduated in 2016 and began teaching at Coal Mountain the following school year. In 2019, I completed my specialist degree through Piedmont College. My husband, Matthew, and I reside in Forsyth. In May of 2020, we welcomed our first child, Leah Katherine to our family. It's such a joy to watch her grow and learn! Outside of teaching, I love helping my husband's family on our Christmas tree farm, spending time with my daughter and husband, attending church, and gardening. I look forward to another wonderful year here on the Moutain!!
