    brickley  Taylor Brickley
    I am so excited for my first year as a Poole's Mill pirate! Forsyth County born and raised, which is why I made it my mission to get a job with Forsyth County Schools. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and Special Education from the University of North Georgia. I started at Pooles Mill in October as a substitute, where I did many long term positions. In my classroom, students will feel nurtured, valued, and supported I have two fur babies, a German Shepherd and a Boxer. In my free time you can find me with friends and family or on the lake.
