    I am so excited to be your first grade teacher! This is my third year at Daves Creek. I earned both my Bachelor and Masters degrees in Early Childhood Education at the University of Georgia. I also hold both Gifted Education and Reading Endorsements. I passionately pursue my goal of instilling a love for learning in children as well as challenging them to be their personal best. I am looking forward to the 2020-2021 school year and to meeting all of my new first graders!

    I am so excited to be your 1st Grade teacher this year! This will be my 2nd year teaching at Daves Creek Elementary. I graduated from The University of North Georgia with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education and Special Education, along with a Reading Endorsement. My husband and I welcomed a beautiful baby girl over the summer, and we are over the moon in love with her. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, coaching basketball, going to the beach and reading a good book. I absolutely love teaching First Grade and I can’t wait to meet all of my sweet students and their families!

    I am very excited to return to Daves Creek as a 1st grade teacher. My husband and I keep busy with our 3 children and their various activities. Our eldest daughter is going to be a senior in high school. Our middle son is going to be a freshman in high school. Our youngest son is going to be a 7th grader in middle school. I graduated with my BA from UCLA (Go Bruins!). I completed my MA in elementary education from San Jose State University in California. While in California, I was a kindergarten, first and second grade teacher in both the private and public sector. I look forward to another amazing year teaching on the DCES staff.

I previously taught first grade for twelve years in Gwinnett County and this will be my third year at Daves Creek. My family and I moved out to Forsyth two years ago and we love it!

I graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Early Childhood Education and have my masters as well in reading and literacy. I got my gifted endorsement in 2014. I am so excited about the new school year and cannot wait for it to begin!
