Meet your teacher!

Hi! I'm Mrs. Lincoln and I am so excited to be your teacher this year. I have been teaching for 17 years and this is my 11th year teaching at Marshpoint/Oatland Island. I am married and have 2 children, both of whom will be attending Kennesaw State this year.

PreK Class Rules

1. Be a friend to your classmates.

2. Be a good listener.

3. Keep hands and feet to yourself.

4. Raise your hand to have a turn to talk.

​​5. Follow the directions that teachers give.​

We ask that you do not send Bug Spray or Sun Screen

Please apply these items prior to arriving for class each morning. If bug spray is necessary, we recommend spraying on clothing instead of skin.

Board of Education Policy states: The parent is responsible for the application of sunscreen or insect repellent, because of the potential of over application and allergic reaction. Students should not be allowed to bring or apply these items at school or the same reasoning. Like other over-the-counter medication they have the potential of being abused or given to other causing illness.​ 

Please Note: Oatland Island is notorious for red bugs/chiggers. Avoid them by applying bug spray to under garments where elastic meets skin and on socks and shoes.​
