What I love about The Mountain Community School is the small class size, close community, and experienced educators. This combination creates a strong school. Our school celebrates students’ unique minds and personalities. Above all, the most important reason I teach at The Mountain Community School is that we care for and love our students.
I am absolutely ecstatic to be teaching second grade at TMCS! My son attended middle school here and I have many great friends among the staff and families. It is here that I feel I can again teach with passion, enthusiasm and energy! I can make a lesson on spelling words as exciting as teaching about the Titanic! I crave movement and have discovered that using rhyme, rhythm and movement is a successful way to reach young children.
After graduating from college in New York State I immediately received a job offer for special education just outside of Charleston SC. I taught in the Charleston area for 6 years. Wanting to start a new challenge with my husband we decided to join the TMCS team. I am excited and honored to be part of a community of students and teachers who share a common vision.
When I first went back to school for my teaching license I knew I wanted to teach at a small school with a strong sense of community. It took a while, but my path finally led me to The Mountain Community School. TMCS is a small school that has a very strong sense of community, and teaching here is my dream job!
My family and I moved from California, where I was a Special Education teacher, to North Carolina a number of years ago. Soon after arriving, I began looking for a school that not only would I like to work at, but a place where I would want my own children to become a part of. The prospect of a new Charter School, The Mountain Community School, quickly caught my attention. I was the first to be hired at TMCS, and my daughter began school as a kindergarten student that same year.
