Mrs. Whitaker-5th Grade
I am truly excited to begin my 23nd year teaching at Highland Elementary. Most of my years have been spent teaching 5th grade. I have taught 4th grade and 3rd grade as well. I love seeing fifth graders grow academically and socially.
I have 2 daughters, Mackenzie and Jordyn. Mackenzie is beginning her 2nd (and final) senior year in college, and Jordyn will finishing Aveda cosmetology school in November. We also have a third furry daughter, Harley, our bulldog. I have been married for 23 years. I love college football and basketball. Of course my favorite team is UNC. I graduated from Appalachian State, so of course I love going to their games. I attended my first Major League Baseball game this summer, and so I'm a proud new fan of the Atlanta Braves!
