Mrs. Greer

1st Grade Teacher

I earned my BS in Elementary Education from Appalachian State University in 2006 and my MA in Reading Education (k-12) from Appalachian in 2009.  I began my teaching career in the Hickory Public Schools system at Jenkins Elementary, where I taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades. I worked in Hickory City  for 12 years, and then returned to Caldwell County as a 1st grade teacher. 

Favorite Educational Quote 
Every child deserves a champion--an adult that will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.--Rita Pierson

Why I Became An Educator
I have always enjoyed sharing new knowledge with people.  To have the ability to shape young minds and make learning fun and exciting is a dream come true!

Favorite place: 
Any hiking trail or anywhere by water!

I enjoy creating new things for the classroom, reading, and cooking!  I also love to spend time with my husband, Jon and my two daughters, Vivian and Charlotte.  We love going to Boone and cheering on our Mountaineers!
