Welcome to the 2017-2018 Conover School year! My name is Rachel Spencer and this is my second year teaching preschool at Conover School. I graduated from Appalachian State University in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Birth through Kindergarten Education and a Master of Education in Teaching and Learning; Early Childhood Development in December 2016. I have two children, Chloe (22) and Nelson (15), as well as 2 cats and 2 dogs, “Luke” Skywalker, Norma Jean, Archie, and Darth “Vader”. Some of my favorite things are reading, owls, Pete the Cat, books, anything orange, Fall, Halloween and teaching. I have worked with young children for 21 years and taught preschool for 15 of those years in North Carolina. Family is the important thing in my life and that includes my school family.
I am not alone in teaching our students so I want to introduce my teaching assistant, Leah Setzer. She is absolutely the best teaching assistant and if I am ever unavailable, please feel free to go to her with any questions or concerns. She is here for your child as well and we work as a team.
If you need to contact me, our phone number is 828- 464-9532.
