    My name is Rikki Comella, and I graduated from University of Georgia way back in 1993! My husband, Marty, and I are the proud parents of 3 children - Matthew, Derek, and Sarah. I've been blessed to be the teacher of hundreds of Comella Kids over the years in Madison, Gwinnett, and Forsyth Counties!

    Mrs. Cooper Dee Cooper

    I taught 3rd grade for 28 years and began my 5th grade journey this past year. I have a BS in Early Childhood Education from Georgia State University, a Masters in Creative Arts and Learning from Lesley University, and I also hold Reading and Mentor Endorsements.  My husband and I have been married for 33 years.  Our daughter and her husband Chance live in Canton, and our son Shane lives and works in Greenville, South Carolina.  I enjoy being outdoors, gardening, fishing, camping, and hiking. I am looking forward to another wonderful year full of adventure, learning, and fun in 5th grade.

    shoemaker Cassie Shoemaker

    I have been teaching in Forsyth County since 2004.  I have taught Pre-K, 1st, 2nd, and 5th grades.  I have also spent the last few years as an Instructional Coach and Instructional Technology Specialist.  Because my passion is being in the classroom to share a love of learning with children in fun, engaging, and authentic ways, I am excited to go back to teaching 5th grade this year!  I am always looking for innovative ways to educate the next generation!

    I have a B.S. in Early Childhood Education from Georgia Southern University, a Masters and Reading Endorsement in Early Childhood Education from North Georgia, a Specialist in Teacher Leadership from Piedmont College, and a Leadership degree from Kennesaw State.
