Michelle Finch


My name is Michelle Finch and I have been teaching for 29 years. I began my teaching career in Gwinnett County, where I taught Kindergarten and EIP.

I moved to Oconee County in 1998 with my husband and began teaching EIP at Colham Ferry Elementary in 2000. In 2002 I had the opportunity to open RBES as a 2nd grade teacher. I moved to 4th grade in 2011 to teach math and science. This year I will be teaching all subjects and I'm so excited. I have been teaching at RBES for 19 years.  I have  three children who attend college at UGA.  Goooo DAWGS!!!

My Philosophy about teaching is..... Have Fun, Be Kind, Make a Difference, Be Brave!!!!!! I look forward to a GREAT year!
