Mrs. Teresa Larson

Hi! I am a third grade teacher at Gamewell Elementary. I have been teaching here for 22 years. In my years at GES, I have taught third grade, fourth grade, and fifth grades. I have served as a PTO Officer, Student Council advisor, and Box Top Coordinator and Box Topper Advisor. I love my GES family, and consider this my "home."


I am originally from Fayetteville, West Virginia. I moved to North Carolina to find a job many years ago. I have been married to Steve for 17 years, and have a very active 14 year old daughter, Kayanna, who also attends Hibriten High School. She is a JV cheerleader for the HHS Panthers. I am also an eight year breast cancer survivor, and am very blesssed to be healthy!


In my spare time, my family enjoys traveling and camping with our dogs Trigger and Sadee. We travel from the mountains to the coast meeting new people and experiencing new things. I also enjoy shopping and spending time with my friends and family.

As a form of communication, I use ClassDojo.  You can always contact me by messaging me on Dojo, emailing, or calling the school. 


Teaching has always been a calling for me, and I love what I do! Thank you for allowing me to teach your child.
