Meet our First Grade Teachers!
We have seven remarkable teachers that make up our first grade team this school year. A few have worked at Rocky River for the last several years and some of the team are brand new to our roadrunner family. Read on to learn a little bit more about them.
I am from Lumberton, NC. This is my 14th year teaching. I went to ASU in Boone, NC. I love to play with my kids and read. Fun fact... I am a PK (preacher's kid) who moved a lot when growing up. This is the longest I have lived anywhere (13 years).
I'm from Cleveland, Ohio. This is my first year teaching! Woo Hoo! I graduated from UNC Charlotte. I love reading any kind of book that has to do with vampires!
I am from Princeton, NC. I moved here from the east coast where I graduated from University of NC Wilmington. I started my teaching career there. I am starting my 3rd year teaching here at Rocky River. For fun I love to take long walks on the beach at sunset.
I am originally one from Wilmington, Delaware. I moved to North Carolina after I graduated from Wingate University in 2010. I have been teaching for three years. Fun Fact: I love to decorate with the different seasons and cook chocolate chip cookies I have two older sisters and a Irish Setter puppy who is three years old and a lot of energy to be around.
I am from Charlotte, North Carolina. This is my second year teaching. I went to college at Wingate University, and I love to play the trumpet.
I am from Long Island, NY where I grew up on the water. This is my 10th year teaching. I went to college in St. Augustine, FL at Flagler College and back home in NY at Dowling College. I love to play with my girls and read. I love fireworks. I worked at a Fireworks company in NY for 8 years before becoming a teacher!
I have been teaching for 16 years. I am from Buffalo, NY and I graduated from Buffalo State College.To maintain a healthy lifestyle, I love to run. I am running the DOPEY Challenge at Disney 48.6 mile run. It is a 5K, 10K, 1/2 marathon and then a full marathon!
