Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Morris

Hello! I am Mrs. Morris your kindergarten teacher. I am so excited to be here teaching at East Clayton Elementary School. I graduated from UNCW with a batchelor's degree in Elementary Education. I also have an associate's degree in  applied science. Teaching became my passion after I got married and had children of my own. When I started teaching my children things it ignited a passion in me and that is when I decided to go to school and become a teacher. I have been married almost ten years and my children have recently gone through kindergarten so I know what it is like to send your baby off on their own. I will hold your hand through the tears, the smiles, the laughter and whatever else this year throws at us. I am committed to the students as well as their families so if their is anything I can do for you please let me know. This year will be a great adventure and I can't wait for it to begin!
