Mrs. Cristy Adams
Welcome to 4th Grade!
I am the 4th grade Math teacher at McGee's Crossroads Elementary 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 certificate, I attended Campbell University. I have been teaching 4th grade for 19 years. The first five years were at Hobbton Elementary and then I went to Benson Elementary for 5 years. I have also taught at Neuse Charter School for two years and at Meadow School for 8 years. I am married to Dell Adams and we celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary in October. We have one son, Rett, who is an upcoming Senior 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. We raise registered 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 brightly every day.
