Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Tonya Gent and I am a third grade teacher at Creekside Elementary School. This is my third year teaching 3rd grade. After 21 years of teaching, I have decided that 3rd grade is my favorite grade to teach.
As a native New Bernian, I have a deep love for this city. Growing up, I attended Brinson Elementary School, H.J. MacDonald Middle School and I was the first graduating class of the "new" New Bern High School in 1992. After graduating from New Bern High School, I attended East Carolina University where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I later received a Master's Degree in Instructional Technology.
