    This is my 21st year of teaching. Matt has been my home for the last 10 years. I have spent the majority of my years teaching 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades. I received my undergraduate degree in education from McNeese State University in Louisiana. I earned my Master's degree from Piedmont College. I am also gifted certified. Every day is a new challenge that I embrace. I hope to make a difference in the life of each child that I have the privilege of teaching!

    Mrs. Grant Cindy Grant

    I am a graduate of Clemson University and have earned my Master's Degree from Grand Valley State University in Michigan. This is my 12th year at Matt Elementary. During my time at Matt Elementary I have taught in both 1st grade and second grade. Previously I taught 1st grade, Pre-K, Special Needs Pre-K, Kindergarten, and a Multi aged 1st-3rd class. Having taught in all those different levels, I have found my "home" in first grade. The children are extremely excited to learn which makes me excited to teach!

    Mrs. Simonds Kelly Simonds
    I grew up in Forsyth County attending Sawnee Elem., Otwell Middle School, and Forsyth Central High School. My dream as a little girl was to grow up to be a wife, mother, and a teacher. I went to North Georgia College after high school and received my teaching degree and Master's degree. I started teaching and then got married to my wonderful husband. We are the proud parents of 2 sons who also attended Matt elementary. I am so blessed that my dreams came true, and I am looking forward to my 24th year of teaching in Forsyth County!
