Summer Aschenbach

Welcome to the STEM lab! I have been teaching since 2016 at a title 1 school. This will be my 1st year at Big Creek and I am so excited to be a Wildcat! I will be your child's Stem/Innovative teacher! I love teaching in unique ways to get students engaged and hands-on. In STEM class, students will be using the engineering design process as they work together to solve problems. In our Makerspace students will have the opportunity to explore their own interests, learn to use tools and materials, and develop creative projects. I can't wait to teach your child this year!

Jenelle Crocker

I am excited to join the Big Creek team! I have worked in Forsyth County Schools since 2013. I have been a 4th grade teacher, Media/Technology teacher, and gifted coordinator. Before that, I taught 5th grade for 7 years in Myrtle Beach, SC. Working in the media center gives me so many opportunities to be creative - bulletin boards, costumes, book displays, STEM lessons, makerspace, research tools, and reading just for fun! What is your favorite thing to do in the media center?? When I’m not reading and learning new tech tools, I run 5Ks, and I yell loudly at sporting events (Go Heels!) and country concerts. I also make t-shirts and crafts with my Cricut, so you might see me shopping at Hobby Lobby or Michaels!

Rachel Groover

I couldn't be more excited to be a returning Wildcat, just in a different fashion. I've been at Big Creek since 2016. I attended Big Creek Elementary as a student from Kindergarten through Fifth Grade and continued through the Forsyth County School System. I graduated from Georgia Southern University in 2015. On the weekends I love spending time with my husband and our dogs Beaux and Cora, making my own art and cheering on my Georgia Southern Eagles!

Erika McGowan

Hi, I’m Erika McGowan. I’ve been the PE Coach at Big Creek since 2000. I’ve been married to my husband I met at UGA since 2000 as well. We have a son at GCSU & a daughter at Lakeside MS. My love for physical activity has always been present and I continue to stay active with running and tennis as an adult. We spend most of our time watching our daughter play soccer and run XC. I love seeing our BC students learn to love physical activity while discovering all the benefits that go along with it.
