My name is Mrs. Gaulden and I am SO glad to be part of the Kindergarten team! Most importantly I am thrilled to be your Kindergarten teacher! It’s going to be a fun year full of lots of learning and other adventures and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us. I want to hear all about you and what you have been up to this summer, but first I am going to tell you a few things about me.
I was born and raised in Kinston, NC (very close to the beach) and I am an only child (no brothers or sisters of my own) but I do have 4 sister-in-laws and 3 brother-in-laws. I am married to a great man named Casey and we have two precious boys, London (8 yrs old, in 2nd grade) and Blake (5 yrs old). We also have 2 dogs, a Pekingese named Boogie and a golden doodle named Sunny. They are all so much fun and they all keep me on my toes. I really miss my family while I am at school so I will need lots of hugs from you each day.
I moved to Greensboro in 2000 and attended UNCG while majoring in Elementary Education and Sociology. I then decided to attend Elon University to obtain my Masters degree in Elementary Education. I LOVE learning so much, I know I am not finished yet. This is my 15th year teaching. I have taught 1st grade for seven years, 2nd grade for a year, and a combo class of 1st/2nd graders for a year. This will be my 6th year teaching K. I love teaching kids your age the most of all because I know exactly where you are coming from and exactly where you need to go!
I am excited to be your teacher this year and for you be part of this awesome school! We are going to ROCK!
