Welcome to Mrs. Mason's Homepage
I grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina and currently live in High Point, NC with my husband Stuart, my son Miles, and furbabies, Bella and Ginger. I enjoy traveling and seeing new places, shooting photography, spending time in the North Carolina mountains, playing board games, and spending time with family and friends.
I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 2003 with a BS in Human Development and Family Studies with a concentration in Child and Adolescent. My passion during my undergraduate studies was to work with at risk youth and positively make an impact in their lives. Upon graduating in 2003, I came across an ACES group leader position job while I searched for a job in my field. Little did I know that becoming a Guilford County Schools employee in September 2003 would change my passion and career! I worked as an ACES group leader and a substitute teacher for a few years. While substituting, I found a passion educating children and it lead me to enroll at Greensboro College pursue an education degree. I became an assistant teacher and went to school at nighttime. In 2008, I started my first year teaching as a 2nd grade teacher! I continued teaching 2nd grade for 5 years and have taught 3rd grade since! This will be my 15th year teaching! I am National Board Certified and am hoping to hear this December if I am successfully maintained!
I often write Donor's Choose projects to enhance my classroom or my professional development. I have received iPads, StoryWorks Jr subscriptions, Ron Clark Academy Educational Day Visit, and most recently bug books to enhance our researching skills for literacy.
