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 18 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 26th wedding anniversary in October. We have one son, Rett, who is an upcoming 10th 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 longhorn cows and miniature donkeys at our farm, Rett's Creek. My classroom motto is "Be the light" because it is important for our lights to shine everyday.
