When I began studying at Liberty University, I pursued a degree in elementary education. In class, I learned the how and why behind teaching. I also spent many hours in a variety of classrooms, which helped me gain experience through observation and through teaching lessons of my own. I student taught in the Fall semester of 2018, and I became a Teacher Assistant for the same school during the Spring semester. In the fall of 2019, I began teaching here at CPCS!

Katie Moore

3rd Grade

The only passion I have ever known for a career is to teach. I began tutoring at a very young age and have fulfilled my life thus far surrounded by children of many ages. One of the things I enjoy the most about teaching is having the opportunity to instill a love of learning into each child that comes into my life. I took the love of learning myself and earned a Master’s in Education, but I continue to work hard to never stop learning new things. One thing I really enjoy about CPCS is I  come in every morning with the intent of teaching the scholars that attend this school, but every evening I leave having learned something new. The students are awesome educators in how to live, laugh, and love… Joseph Joubert said it best when he said, “To teach is to learn twice.”

Autumn Stobart

I received my bachelor’s degree from Appalachian State University in Elementary Education– with hopes of advancing my educational career in the future.

From art, to dance, to skateboarding, we do it all and embrace adventure as a family. Within the classroom, I am a highly motivated, enthusiastic and dedicated educator who wants all children to be successful learners. I believe that all students are wired for success and that success is created through meaningful relationships.
