Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Adrianne H Staten
I have been an elementary teacher for the past 28 years - teaching grades Kindergarten, second, third, fourth, fifth, and AIG classes with a focus on literacy. Most recently, I have been a MTL (Master Teacher Leader) at the elementary level. In my role as MTL, I support teachers with instruction and curriculum (and anything else they need), while also working with small groups of students at various grade levels - mostly in the area of literacy.
I grew up in Lexington, attended Meredith College in Raleigh, and returned home to begin my teaching career. I have been here ever since, with my whole teaching career being in Lexington City Schools. My passion is reading - helping students develop a love of reading, and developing relationships with the students I work with throughout Lexington. One of my greatest joys is when I see my former students out and about in Lexington and getting a big hug.
I am married to my high school sweetheart. He is a middle school teacher and coach and we have 2 boys - one is a freshman and one is a senior.
This year I am housed at Pickett Elementary, but you may also see me at any of the other elementary schools supporting teachers.
