My personal experience story.
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 joined The Mountain Community School when the doors opened in 1999. In 2003, I entered the world of stay-at-home moms for eight years to be with my son and daughter. I rejoined TMCS in 2013 and am excited again to work in the same wonderful school. Our school promotes great content and creativity.
Our school creates an atmosphere not only for children to soar, but for the faculty as well. As an author, I am supported and encouraged. In addition to teaching first grade, I teach at writing conferences and serve as assistant director of Writers Boot Camp in Asheville, NC.
As a result, I pour my love of writing into the classroom with me. I am the author of a children’s book, Mary Slessor, Missionary Mother. I’ve contributed to book compilations including Divine Moments, Faith and Family, and Spirit and Heart. My published articles appear in Kids’ Ark Magazine, Clubhouse, and numerous online publications.
