8th Grade Science
I am a life long resident of Alexander County. My career in education started at Hiddenite Elementary. There I taught 1st grade for 12 years and 5th grade math and science for 3 years. I needed a change in my life and felt like middle school was the answer. I was so right!!! I began teaching 8th grade science in 2016 and have no regrets in that choice.
