Welcome to Glenwood' s second year of the K-1-2 class!! Ms. Patricia and I are thrilled to be starting our second year on this journey with 20 amazing students!! We have 7 returning first graders, 7 returning second graders, and 6 brand new kinder! A little background information - My name is Carrie Franklin and this is my 15th year of teaching, all at Glenwood. I graduated from Appalachain State University with a double major in elementary education and Spanish. My husband Brian is a PE teacher and varsity boys basketball coach at McDowell High. We have two children, Marlee is 11 and Roby is 8. My assistant is Patricia LaFountain and she is also a bus driver at Glenwood. We work so well together and she is a true asset to my classroom. She and her husband Brian live with their two sons, Noah and Neil in Black Mountain. We look forward to this wonderful adventure together with our K-1-2 class!
We love to sing and speak Spanish in our classroom. We learn reading through a Daily Five approach, where kids rotate through different stations, meeting with the teacher and taking ownership of their learning. We learn and have fun everyday!
