I am looking forward to my 6th year here at Sawnee. This year will be my 14th year of teaching, my 9th year in 4th grade. I have a Master's Degree in Elementary Education and I have a Bachelor's Degree in Advertising/Marketing from the University of Georgia. I was born and raised in Miami and spent my summers growing up in Blue Ridge. I'm excited for another awesome year at Sawnee!
This is my fourth year teaching at Sawnee! I have a Masters of Arts in Teaching from Brenau University and a Bachelor's degree in Finance from NGCSU. I grew up in Forsyth County and graduated from North Forsyth. I have been happily married for over 17 years to my best friend, Ben. We have two awesome kids together who are in the 5th and 9th grades in Forsyth County Schools. As a life-long learner, I look forward to working with my students to help motivate and inspire them to learn new things every day!

After 18+ years in the corporate world, I embarked on my teaching journey, and I have loved every minute of it! I hold a BBA with an emphasis in Accounting from the University of West Georgia, and an MA in Teaching from Western Governors University. I am Special Ed certified, Gifted and Teacher Leader endorsed, and most recently added my math endorsement. I have 13 years of classroom experience, teaching both 4th and 5th grades. I am excited to be back at Sawnee Elementary because this is where my journey as an educator began, and I'm so happy to be part of this amazing team!

My name is Jessica Molter and I have been a Georgia educator for the last 15 years. I previously worked at Cumming Elementary and helped to open Kelly Mill Elementary where I also led the Battle of the Books and Robotics teams. My husband and I are both originally from Michigan, but have loved making our home with our two children in Georgia. Both my son and I are very excited to join the Sawnee Elementary community this year!
I am so excited for another great school year! I graduated from North Georgia College and State University in 2008 and have been teaching ever since. The first four years I taught Georgia Pre-K in Dawsonville then I moved to Sawnee Elementary and have been teaching 4th grade. I love spending time with my family and friends doing anything outdoors. My favorite thing to do is anything involving water like going to the pool or kayaking. I’m looking forward to a new school year with my school family!
This will be my first year at Sawnee but my 10th year of teaching!I have a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Southern California and I have a Bachelor's Degree from California State University, Long Beach. I was born and raised in Southern California and moved here two years ago. I have four kids, a dog, and two cats. When I am not teaching, I love spending time at the beach, reading, hiking, and gardening.
This will be my fourth year teaching 4th grade at Sawnee Elementary. I have a BA in Psychology from Binghamton University and a Masters in Elementary Education from the University of New Hampshire. Showing students the fun side of math is a passion of mine- and yes, I used "math" and "fun" in the same sentence. I love to learn and aim to inspire my students to do the same!
