Big Creek Elementary 4th GradeSchool Phone: (770)- 887-4584
Chenoa Russell Hi students and parents! My name is Chenoa Russell, and I will be teaching math and science in 4th grade this year!This is my 10th year teaching. I graduated from the University of Georgia with a math endorsement. I began teaching 2nd grade in Barrow County. There I completed a two year training in Cognitively Guided Instruction in Math. I taught 2nd grade for four years and third grade for two years before moving to teach in Forsyth. I have loved teaching at Big Creek Elementary and working with our amazing staff. I've taught 2nd grade for the past three years at BCE and am very excited to have the opportunity to teach fourth grade this year.After moving here, I met my husband, Ryan, and we have been married for a little over a year. We have a dog named Pepper. We love to go hiking and enjoying the outdoors. We enjoy spending time with family and friends, having game nights, grilling out, and watching movies. We are both looking forward to this upcoming year. I can't wait to meet you all and enjoy this year together! 710440 CRussell@forsyth.k12.ga.us Amanda Walton Hello! My name is Amanda Walton and I am so excited to be entering my first year teaching at Big Creek! My family and I recently moved into the area and we are thrilled to be joining the Big Creek family. I grew up in Gwinnett county, graduating from Greater Atlanta Christian School in Norcross and then continuing my education at Lipscomb University where I played soccer all four years and graduated with a degree in elementary education. Teaching and working with children has always been a passion of mine. I have had the wonderful privilege of working with children in and out of the country, in public and private school settings, and in the community. I taught middle school math for six years at a private school before choosing to stay home with my young children. Soon after, I went back to teaching in Gwinnett county where I have taught 4th grade for the past two years.When I am not at school, my family and I enjoy being active outdoors, spending our Saturday afternoons at the soccer fields, finding new hiking trails to explore with our dog Max, and cheering on the Georgia Bulldogs! My husband and I have three wonderful kids that will also be attending Big Creek this year. I look forward to meeting each of you and getting to know your precious children. It is an absolute blessing and privilege! 710438 AWalton@forsyth.k12.ga.us Rebecca StewartHello students and parents! My name is Rebecca Stewart and I cannot wait to teach 4th grade Math and Science at Big Creek this year! I was born in Illinois, but moved to Alpharetta, Georgia at a young age. After graduating from Alpharetta High School I attended Georgia Southern University to study Early Childhood Education. I completed my student teaching (5th grade Math) and first year of teaching (4th grade Math/Sci) near Savannah, Georgia. I had an amazing experience my past few years teaching in south Georgia, but moved back home to be closer to loved ones. My parents now live in the Roswell area. My younger sister is still at Georgia Southern studying education. My older brother, his wife, and my twin nephews live here in Forsyth County.Aside from teaching, I love to spend time outdoors at the lake or beach, fishing, hiking, and exploring local/ historical sites. I enjoy reading, going to the beach, animals, and getting together with friends and family. Growing up, I spent much of my time in a gym or on the sidelines as a cheerleader. I love all school subjects, but am especially excited to continue teaching Math and Science for a second year. There are many exciting topics that we learn about in 4th grade. I am so excited to have the opportunity to teach here at Big Creek! 710441 RStewart@forsyth.k12.ga.us Ashley Martin
I am very excited about my class this year and want to take an opportunity to introduce myself. I was born in St. Petersburg, Florida and lived in the same house until the day I went away to college. I attended the University of North Carolina at Greensboro where I received a tennis scholarship. I received my Bachelors in Elementary Education with a minor in Sociology in 2002. I received my Masters in Reading and Literacy from Walden University in 2006. I am entering my 14th year of teaching and my 9th year at Big Creek. I am very excited to be here with such a supportive and loving staff!
On a more personal note, I have been married for almost 14 years to my best friend, Kacey. He was a teacher and Boy's Varsity Basketball Coach at Chattahoochee High School in Fulton County from 2008-2016. He recently became an AP over at Forsyth Central High School! We are super excited to finally be working in the same county! We have two wonderful children, Haley, who is 11 years old and Brady, who is 9 1/2 years old. We also have the BEST dog in the world, Diesel, who is a 1-year old Golden Retriever. He is just a pup and full of wild energy! We also have a black, furry cat named Fuzzy! I do have to say he loves me the best. This is honestly the first animal I have ever had who chose me as their number 1!
I am looking very forward to this school year and will see you soon!
