Mrs. Byerly

I have been in education for 7 years. I began teaching Middle School Language Arts and Social Studies at Gamewell Middle School in 2014. I attended Appalachian State University and received a Bachelors Degree in Middle Grades Education with concentrations in Language Arts and Social Studies. I am currently working on my degree in Administration through Grand Canyon University and graduate in October 2021.

Why I Became An Educator
I truly feel that I was born to be an teacher. From an early age, I would play school with my brothers and I was always the "bossy teacher." I was fortunate enough to have some wonderful teachers during my time in school and many of them left a mark on my life. I truly enjoy making a difference in the lives of my students ny showing them love and grace daily. Fortunately for my students, I am not the mean teacher I was to my brothers.

Favorite Places in Caldwell County
One of my favorite spots in Caldwell County would be Wilson's Creek. You can truly see the beauty of our area when you visit there. Another favorite spot of mine in Caldwell County is my church. There I am the choir director and enjoy spending time with my church family.

I enjoy spending time with my family. I am married and we have three sons. I am blessed to have two wonderful grandchildren that call me Mimi.
