Abby Buchanan - Assistant Principal

I am thrilled to be a part of Matt family and I look forward to getting to know the wonderful students, parents, and community even better this year. 

This is my 12th year in Forsyth County, where I previously served as assistant principal at Sharon Elementary for 3 years.  Prior to that, I was Administrative Support at Midway Elementary and also served as an IRR teacher and academic coach for five years at Vickery Creek Elementary.  Prior to working in Forsyth County, I worked in the private school sector, Cherokee County school system, and in New Jersey as a 4th grade teacher.

Although I grew up in Pennsylvania, I’ve spent the past 20 years in Georgia and absolutely love the warmer weather.  I have three children who keep me busy.  My free time is usually spent running around to various track meets, football games, basketball tournaments, and dance lessons.   

I look forward to another amazing school year at Matt Elementary!
