Mrs. Christy Owens
My full name is Christy Pennell Owens. I grew up here in Caldwell/Burke County (back and forth all my life). I attended the now non-existent Caldwell County elementary school, Rhodhiss Elementary. I was the last 6th grade class to graduate from there before it was closed permanently. During my middle/junior high school time, I attended Burke County Schools because I lived on that side of the river. After middle school, we moved to Caldwell County where I attended South Caldwell High School. I earned my bachelor's degree from Appalachian State University and my master's degree from Gardner Webb University. I became Nationally Board Certified in November 2009. Next, I would like to begin working on my Educational Specialist Degree or my Doctorate of Philosophy in Education.
I am happily married to Ray. We have been married for 20 years. I have a set of 13-year-old boy/girl twins, Bethany and Cameron. I also have a 7-year-old, Aden. We call them our ABC's. They are the most precious things in our lives.
My favorite subjects to learn and teach are math, writing, reading, science, and social studies...well I guess everything. :) I hope to share and spread my excitement about education to the students under my care.
