Ms. Gordon's Kindergarten

Hello My Name Is...

Ms. Gordon

I was born and raised in a small town in Connecticut but have lived in a lot of different places. From a large family (seven children!), I have three sisters who live in North Carolina and the rest of my family is in Connecticut. I have three grown children, 2 boys and a girl, and six grandchildren. 

With four younger siblings, I began babysitting at a very young age and started babysitting for other families at age 12. I wanted to be a teacher from the time I began school myself. I attended Pinellas Technical Education and St. Petersburg College in Clearwater, Florida, before transferring to the University of South Florida in St. Petersburg. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and additional certifications in Exceptional Children Education, English for Speakers of Other Languages, and Reading. 

I moved to North Carolina and began teaching at South Lexington School in February of 2015. I love teaching kindergarten and have made many friends here. My students make coming to work a pleasure!
