Meet Mrs. Huddleston:
Welcome to First Grade! My father was in the Air Force and was stationed in Japan. That's where I was born on July 4. He was a teacher for many years and then a principal. He is now retired. My parents lived in the mountains for many years, but they have recently moved to Johnston County only 15 minutes from my house. When I was growing up, we lived many places, but my favorite was when we lived in Boone. I still love the NC mountains. I went to college at Appalachian State University. This is my 25th year at West Clayton and after 23 years in second grade I am excited to be back in first grade. I have been married for 29 years. We have a 25 year old son, Matthew. He recently graduated from NC State University with a degree in meteorology. He is the new weekend meteorologist for WWAY in Wilmington. We have two dogs named Lizzy and Freddy. They are a beagle/coonhound mix and are 4 years old. In my free time I love to read. My two favorite authors are Nicholas Sparks and Danielle Steel. I love to collect angels, snowmen, and flip-flops.
