    Mrs. Adam Mary Catherine Adam
    I graduated from The University of Georgia with a degree in Early Childhood Education and a math endorsement. Also, I have my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction that I earned five years ago. This is my tenth year teaching- all in first grade and all at Daves Creek! My husband and I are blessed with two wonderful children; a three year old girl and an eight month old boy. Teaching young minds has brought a whole new perspective for me now that I have children of my own. I look forward to working with you and your child this year!

    I am so excited to be teaching First Grade at Daves Creek!  I am a graduate of Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and I recently began my Masters program through the University of West Georgia. I have been teaching Kindergarten and First Grade for the last 20 years.  I have been married to Dustin for 24 years and I have two super children, Aaron (12th Grade) and Emma (9th Grade).  I enjoy reading, watching Falcons football, Braves baseball, and I really love to teach!  My goal is for your children to leave my classroom with a love for learning and a love for school.  I believe that they will thrive in an environment where they are valued and, with that in mind, I will strive to make sure that each child has a special place in our classroom.  I really look forward to working with you and your children this year!

    I am so excited to be your first grade teacher! This is my fourth year at Daves Creek. I graduated from the University of Georgia with a Bachelors in Early Childhood Education. I am currently working on my Masters degree in Early Childhood Education. When I am not teaching I love to hang out with my family and friends. I enjoy reading, running, and baking. My goal is to create a positive classroom environment where each child feels comfortable to learn and be themselves. I want all of my students to leave my classroom with the love of learning.

    I am very excited to be teaching First Grade at Daves Creek!  I am looking forward to being your child's First Grade teacher.  I am a graduate of Georgia State University and next summer will graduate with a Masters Degree in Early Childhood from University of West Georgia. This is my 20th year of teaching.  I have taught Third Grade, Kindergarten, Fourth and Fifth Grade Reading and Math, and this is my eighth year in First Grade at Daves Creek.   My approach to education is based on my sincere interest in the children, seeing them grow and develop as individuals, and sharing with them my enthusiasm for learning.  It is my philosophy to look for the best in students, and to do whatever is necessary to help them develop a love for lifelong learning.  I live in Forsyth County with my husband of twenty years and my two sons, ages 14 and 17.  In my free time, I enjoy reading, shopping and watching both of my sons play baseball.
