Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Overby

Hi!  I am SO excited to be teaching at Dudley Shoals Elementary School.  I graduated from Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute with an associate's degree in early childhood education in 2018.  I transferred to Lees-McRae College in Banner Elk and graduated with a bachelor's degree in elementary education in 2020.  What a year 2020 was!

When I am not busy teaching young minds, I love to bake, cook, camp, hike, kayak, and ride a motorcycle.  I'm convinced that while every day might not be a "good" day, there IS good in every day.  My husband Johnny and I have been married for 24 years (in October).  I have two stepsons, John (wife Rhiannon), and Steven (wife Lauren), and four grandchildren, Nathaniel, Dylan, Allison, and Carolina.  I love being "Mema" to them.  I have two dogs, Beaufort (Bo-fort) and Roxanne.  

Thanks for allowing me to teach and love your children.  They're my favorite!
