Jessica Davis

Hi there! My name is Jessica Davis and I am thrilled to be joining the First Grade team here at New Hope Elementary! 

I grew up in Cumming and attended school in Forsyth County all throughout my early, middle, and high school years. I graduated from the University of North Georgia with a dual bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and Special Education along with a reading endorsement. This will be my third year teaching in Forsyth County, and I am beyond excited to be returning to First Grade! 

My absolute favorite thing about teaching is getting to build close relationships with each of my students and providing them with love and support to ensure that they are successful in their learning journey. In my spare time, I enjoy taking my dog on walks and spending time with friends and family! 

I am looking forward to a fantastic school year filled with lots of learning and fun!

Hi, Nighthawks! I am so excited for another fun year in first grade! I have my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Georgia (GO DAWGS!).  I also earned my master's in Elementary Education from Piedmont University. I have taught first and second grades in Forsyth County since 2013.

I am a Georgia native and currently live in Roswell with my husband, Patrick, our daughter, Hadley, and our two sweet dogs, Mack and Ruby. Outside of school, I love to read (preferably on the beach!), cook, and play trivia with friends. We also love watching Georgia football and the Atlanta Braves!

I am looking forward to all of the learning and positive relationships we will build in our classroom this year!
