Carol Forti -FortiC@fultonschools.org                  http://fortic.weebly.com/
My name is Carol Forti. I grew up in Dunwoody, Georgia. I moved to southern California in my senior year of high school. I lived there for ten years then returned to Georgia in 1990. Prior to teaching, I worked in retail management for fourteen years. I have a B.S. in Nutrition and Dietetics and a M. Ed. in Early Childhood Education. I have two daughters. In my spare time I love to bake and cook.

Jenna Henkel - henkel@fultonschools.org                         http://mrshenkelsclass.weebly.com/
My name is Jenna Henkel and I am very excited to begin my first year teaching fifth grade at Cogburn Woods Elementary School. I moved to Georgia in 2001 and graduated from Milton High School in 2003. In 2009, I graduated from Kennesaw State University with a Bachelor of Science in Early and Elementary Childhood Education and a minor in chemistry. In 2011, I got married to my wonderful husband, Erik. This past year was a busy one for me - not only did I complete my Master's Degree and Reading Endorsement from Kennesaw State University, but Erik and I also welcomed our daughter, Veronika! Besides teaching, I love to read, do arts n' crafts, and spend time with our three dogs, Mandy (a Lab mix), Bruno (a German Shepherd), and Rhett (a Golden Retriever mix). I am also the author of a children's book Rhett's Adventure Home An Adoption Tale. I am looking forward to another great year at Cogburn Woods Elementary School!

Dondra Parham - ParhamD2@fultonschools.org                 http://dondraparham.weebly.com/
I received my undergraduate degree in 1981 from the University of Mississippi. In 2004, I earned a Masters in Education from Mercer University. Every day, for me, is a great day to learn something, and at Cogburn Woods we learn something new about our world or ourselves every day. It is a terrific place at which to teach and to learn. Every year my students and I embark on an adventure: We make friends with our new classmates and learn interesting new things at this warm and welcoming school. My husband, Ray, and I are raising three daughters. The oldest two, Sally and Kathryn, attend the University of Georgia. Claire, the youngest, is attending Hopewell Middle School, just next-door to Cogburn Woods.

Brent Rippy - Rippy@fultonschools.org
I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. I have been fortunate during my life to also live in Texas, Illinois, and South Carolina. While previously in the corporate world, I was an instructor, volunteer, and coach for area schools since 1998. I began full time teaching in 2009. Along with currently teaching 5th grade, I have previously taught 4th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. I spend my time off watching movies, planning family travels, playing video games, and watching American Idol. I have enjoyed playing and teaching percussion/drums since I was in the 6th grade. I am a graduate Texas A&M (English/Music), University of North Georgia (Certification), and Piedmont College (Masters in Education). I am currently working on my Educational Specialist and Doctorate Degrees. My wife, Shannon, is a Clemson Graduate. We are huge Clemson Tiger Fans! Go Tigers! I have two older kids, Zach and Kelly.
