 Mrs. Layne
  Welcome to my website.  I have been teaching in Mecklenburg County Public Schools since 1987. I first taught in North Carolina.  I taught first grade there for 3 years. In Virginia, I taught second grade for one year. Then I moved to Kindergarten.  In 2000, I wanted a change, so I taught Pre-K for four years. But my love has always been Kindergarten and when the opportunity arose, I came back to it! 
    I am married and have two children. My oldest son is 26 and he is married. He has blessed us with 3 grandchildren: Jordan, Hailee, and  Maci. They are a joy!  My daughter just graduated from UVA. She is aspriring to be a nurse practitioner.  I am proud of both of my children.
    My husband Mark, works at Annin in South Boston. He is a wonderful husband and father.
Oh My! I almost forgot the other important members of our family!  Honey Bun Belle Dog and Zoe and ZuZu. One lovable hound dog that found us, and two old cats from the SPCA years back. We love them. (update..another hound found us recently... Fred!)
    I am excited to be at Clarksville Elementary School!  I cannot believe the changes in the past two years for me. I went from a dinosaur in technology to promethean boards and ipads in the classroom!  Woohoo!  Looking forward to  another exciting year in kindergarten!
