A little bit about Mrs. Gould

This will be my sixteenth year teaching at Ogden.  I received my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from UNC-Wilmington in 2002.  I earned National Board Certification as an Early Childhood Generalist in 2008.  I am honored to have been nominated by my peers as Ogden's 2009-2010 teacher of the year! It is also an honor to be recognized as the New Hanover County teacher of the year for 2009-2010!

I am excited to be teaching kindergarten this year!  I have taught kindergarten, first, and second grade and have enjoyed each one in different ways.  My heart is with kindergarten children, their families, and the kindergarten curriculum.  I am looking forward to getting to know your children and working with them to establish a strong foundation and love of learning.  I strive to create an exciting and structured learning environment where the best is brought out in each child.

When I am not at school I love to spend time with my family!  My husband, David, works for the NC Highway Patrol.  He works all hours, so we have a crazy schedule sometimes!  Our daughter, Tenley, is 6 and our son, Asher, is 3.  Tenley is a busy little girl who loves the water and her little brother!  She will be in first grade this year!  Asher is always on the go chasing after his big sister!  I look forward to getting to know your families this year as well!
