    About Me

         This is my eighth year as a third grade teacher.  I graduated from Appalachian State University, with my Bachelors in Elementary Education, in May of 2011. I taught third grade at Shepherd Elementary for 2 years and moved back home to Celeste Henkel.  Prior to teaching, I worked at Celeste Henkel Elementary School for eight years as a teaching assistant while I attended College.  While working at Celeste, I fell in love with the excitement of watching children learn and witnessing their "aha" moments.  I know in my heart that teaching at Celeste Henkel is where I belong because I have a lot of roots at this school as my mom graduated from Celeste, I attended Celeste, and my children attended Celeste also.  I am looking forward to this challenging and exciting new school year.
     
         I am married to Tony.  We have been married since November of 1989. We have four children.  Bradley,  Michael, Samuel, and Philip 24.  Bradley is engaged and has 2 children, Michael is married and has 2 children, Samuel got married in July, and Philip is living in Wilmington NC.  We have one three year old fur baby, Kuechly!  We also have 19 chickens.
