    Wendie Guthrie Wendi Guthrie



    I am a Georgia native and have lived in Forsyth County for twenty years.  I have a wonderful husband and three beautiful daughters.  My oldest, Linzy, is married and has two children.  I love being a Gammy!  Sydney graduated from UGA and is now attending East Virginia Medical School.  Kaylie is our youngest and will be a 5th grader at Big Creek this year. This will be my 14th year teaching and 6th year at Big Creek. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending as much time as I can with my family and friends.  I also enjoy reading, shopping (I have 3 girls!), and vacationing!

    Welcome to 1st grade!  I am looking forward to working with you and your child to have a fun and successful year!

    My name is Morgan O’Leary and I am so excited to be your first grade teacher this year! I hope that you all had a fun summer and are ready for a new school year! I graduated from Wake Forest University in North Carolina where I studied Elementary Education with a minor in Sociology. This is my third year at Big Creek Elementary, and I am looking forward to another awesome year. I absolutely LOVE first grade, as we will learn so much and have so much fun, too! I am very close with my family. My parents live in Buffalo, New York (where I grew up!) and my brother, Matthew, lives in Boston. We are all over the map!! I am lucky to also have fabulous friends that I love to spend time with as well. I cannot wait to get to know you and your families, and I know we will have a fun and successful year together!
