    This is my first year at Poole’s Mill, and twelfth year in Forsyth County Schools.  I am excited about meeting my awesome kindergartners!  I graduated from North Georgia College and State University with a degree in History.  After working as a kindergarten paraprofessional for several years, I went back to school and graduated from Liberty University with a Masters of Arts in Teaching.  I am a Forsyth County native, and I live with my wonderful husband, spoiled rotten cat, and handsome son.  I am looking forward to meeting you!

    I am over the moon to begin my teaching career at Poole's Mill Elementary!  I'm a Forsyth County native and was actually raised just down the road from this beautiful school.  I have a Bachelor's degree in Kinesiology from Georgia Southern University as well as a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from West Florida University.  I recently said "I do" to my best friend, Everett, and we have a fur baby mini Goldendoodle named Bentley.  I have a bubbly personality, and you'll always find me smiling.  A priority of mine is to create a classroom environment where my students are always smiling, too.  I can't wait for this school year to begin so that I can meet all of my kindergarten friends!

    I have been teaching in Forsyth since 2018, but taught for many years before that in another county. I have taught Kindergarten, First, Second, and Fourth grades. When teaching, I strive to create a classroom family where students feel safe to be creative and have fun when learning. When not in the classroom, I love spending time with my family.

     pennington  Sarah Pennington

    My name is Sarah Pennington, and I could not be more thrilled to be on the pirate ship this year at Poole’s Mill Elementary! This will be my fourth year teaching in Forsyth County and my first year teaching kindergarten. I graduated from the University of Georgia in 2019 with my Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education. I love to read, so teaching students about books is a dream come true! My goal is to create a classroom where every student feels safe, loved, and capable of great things. When I’m not in school, you can probably find me cooking something new in the kitchen or spending quality time with my family and our two rescue dogs.
