Welcome to our team! We are thrilled to work with you for your final year of middle school- which will be the best year yet! Team Avengers includes Math 8 as well as high school course NC Math 2. Throughout my career, I have taught 7th and 8th grade math courses including standard math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Common Core Math I and II, and NC Math 1.
Along with my MEd degree from UNCG, I am a National Board Certified teacher in Early Adolescent Mathematics with an added NC licensure in Gifted Education from High Point University. In 2006 I was one of two selected teachers state-wide to represent NC as a participant in the Fulbright Memorial Program which is a 4-week intensive cultural exchange in Japan.
Before I transitioned to Kernodle, I started teaching at Jamestown Middle School where I met my husband, Dr. Jesse Gassaway, who just retired from NWMS as an eighth grade math teacher. I taught at KMS for three years, transferred to NWMS as my husband's boys were moving through the school, and then returned back to KMS.
As a Boston native, I love the Red Sox, Bruins, Celtics and Patriots! Boston Strong!
