Welcome 5th Grade!

Welcome to 5th grade. My name is Shannon Edge and I am very excited about becoming part of Clearmont Elementary and the Yancey County community.  I am originally from Madison County and taught 4th grade at Mars Hill Elementary.  I now live in Yancey County with my husband, who is originally from here, and our four children. Two of my children currently attend Yancey County schools. Becoming part of the community I live in is very important to me, and I am proud to give back to the area. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from Mars Hill College, and have worked with children in some capacity since I was fourteen. I love working with children and being a teacher, my goal is to instill a love for life-long learning, and help students achieve academic success. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, gardening, making jewelry, soap, lotion, and lip balm. I look forward to working with your child this year and I am excited to be in 5th grade.
