My Classroom Mission
We, the 1st graders in Mr. Waugh's class, will work hard to learn how to read, write and do math during first grade so that we will be ready to SOAR into second grade. We will do this while being respectful, responsible and safe. We will work as a team full of super heroes to accomplish these things and always try our hardest no matter what.
TES Mission Statement
Troutman Elementary will work together to achieve high academic growth for every student, through the use of rigorous goals, continuous improvement and collaboration with staff, comminuty and parents.
Welcome to our classroom! My name is Benjamin Waugh and this is my 2nd year teaching. I did my student teaching at Cool Srings Elementary in 1st grade in 2017. I have my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Appalachain State University with concentrations in Diversity Studies.
I was born and raised in Iredell County, specifically in the Cool Springs area. When I am not focused on my students, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also love being in the outdoors hunting, fishing, hiking or enjoying Sunday's at Panther games. I look forward to having an awesome year with your children and learning so much!
