    Avera   Kelley Avera  
    I have been an educator for 26 years and this is my 22nd year at Daves Creek. I graduated from Kennesaw State University with a B.A. in Business Administration and my Teacher Certification. In 2006, I earned my Master's in Elementary Education, then in 2008, earned my Educational Specialist in Curriculum and Instruction from Piedmont College. I received my Gifted Endorsement in 2014 followed by my Math Endorsement in 2016. I completed my STEM Endorsement in the spring of 2019. I love to incorporate technology in my teaching. I know that students work best when they are engaged and having fun while learning and I try to accomplish this in my lessons. When I am not teaching I enjoy time with my family and friends and mostly in St. Augustine, FL at my family beach house. I am looking forward to having my students back in the classroom next year!!!

    This will be my second year in fourth grade at Daves Creek and my 19th year as an educator. I have taught 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, and 4th grade. I graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso with my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education, as well as a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with Technology from NOVA Southeastern University, and also have earned a gifted certification. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family, which includes my two boys Tyler, 5, who will be in Kindergarten and Sawyer, 7, who will be a second grader at Daves Creek this coming school year. I am excited to be your fourth grade teacher and look forward to meeting all of you this coming school year!

    Ossowski  Rachel Monnin  
    I am so excited to be a part of the Daves Creek family! I have taught for 7 years in Ohio and Georgia – everything from Pre-K to 9th grade math – and then took some years off to be full time with my family and run a small business. I received my Bachelor’s degree at Indiana University with certification in Middle School Math and an Early Childhood Endorsement. I have been married to my husband, Craig, since June of 2000 and have two children at Forsyth Central High School. I enjoy exercise, nutrition, boating, live music and travel.
