Hi! My name is Mrs. Tilley and I am so excited to be part of this Third Grade Team! More importantly, I am THRILLED to be your child's teacher!

I am a native to McDowell County. I love gardening, canning, cooking and spending time with my family.

After graduating from Mars Hill College in May 2002, I began teaching first grade at Old Fort Elementary in August 2002. During 2008-2009, I taught a first and second grade combination class. Then, I continued to teach second grade. As of this year, August 2015, I will be teaching third grade science and social studies.

I believe your children are a gift and they have been given his/her own talents and gifts. I will make sure that your child uses that gift as much as possible. Kids are the future and what YOU and I achieve with them today will affect tomorrow. Parent-Teacher communication is the key.

Please contact me if you have any concerns or question about your child's progress or behavior that you think I should know about. I am generally at school at 7:30 and until 3:30. 828-668-7646

You and I can do so much for your child when we work together!!!
