Mrs. Cristy Adams
Welcome to 4th Grade!
I am the 4th grade Social Studies/Science teacher at Meadow School. I grew up in Benson, North Carolina and went to school at Benson Elementary, Benson Middle, and South Johnston High School. Upon graduation, I attended North Carolina State University and obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Human Resources. To obtain my teaching certification, I attended Campbell University. I have been teaching 4th grade for 19 years. The first five years were at Hobbton Elementary, then I went to Benson Elementary for 5 years. Before coming to Meadow School, I taught at Neuse Charter School for two years. I am married to Dell Adams and we celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary in October. We have one son, Rett, who is an upcoming 11th grader at South Johnston High School.
I love ladybugs and my favorite colors are red and black. I enjoy spending time with my family, volunteering my time in my community/church, and I love to read. I have registered longhorn cows, miniature donkeys, and miniature ponies at our farm, Rett's Creek. My classroom motto is "Be the Light" because it is important for our lights to shine everyday.
