Meet Your Teacher

Meet Your Teacher!,%20Stacia/Class%20Picture.png

Welcome! I just wanted to give everyone a little background information about myself so that you can better understand the person teaching your precious child. I am from a very small town called Hayesville, North Carolina and I have always wanted to become a teacher. To fulfill this goal, I obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree from UNCA. In addition, I received my K-6 licensure.

After I graduated, I married my college sweetheart and we stayed in Asheville. This is the start of my 16th year of teaching in Buncombe County! I am blessed to be teaching at Estes. It is such a wonderful and dedicated school!

In addition to my public school experience, I worked part time at Hayesville Child Development for seven years. This allowed me to gain a better understanding of children and gain valuable experience that enabled me to become a better teacher.

I want you to know that I am blessed to have the opportunity to teach your precious child. I do not consider this a job. Teaching is my calling and I love what I do! A theme in my classroom is to try, try, try your very best. If I expect that from my students, in return, my students will see the same from their teacher! It is a passion of mine to see every child succeed to the best of his/her capability!

While I am not at school, I enjoy being outside, taking LOTS of pictures, listening to music, playing volleyball, singing with my mom, and most importantly spending time with my family and friends.
