    Avera   Kelley Avera  
    I have been an educator for 26 years and this is my 19th 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 will begin working on my STEM Endorsement this fall. 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.

    Keller   Janet Keller  
    I graduated Summa Cum Laude from UGA in 1990 as a co-valedictorian, and then obtained a Master's degree in Early Childhood Education from Georgia State University. I was National Board Certified in 2003, and have been teaching grades K-4 for 27 years, 17 of those at Daves Creek! I work as our United Way chairperson and enjoy volunteering for school events. I believe that children need a nurturing, yet challenging environment to flourish, and my goal is to meet the needs of all of my students and to have them truly enjoy their fourth grade experience.

    This is my 14th year teaching overall, and third year at Daves Creek. I previously taught kindergarten for three years in Delaware, my home state. I then moved to New Jersey and taught 5th grade for eight years. For the past two years, I have taught fifth grade here at Daves Creek and am excited for my first year teaching fourth. My goal is to create an exciting and challenging classroom to push your child to reach his or her fullest potential. I look forward to another great year with you and your children here at Daves Creek!
