Ms. Carol Wasicki
Hello! I have been teaching ELA for 6 years and have taught grades 6-10. However, I am certified to teach grades 6-12. I am originally from Richmond, Va and am a graduate of VA Tech with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English. Go Hokies!!! I received my ELA secondary teacher certification from South Carolina State University. I have lived in North Carolina since 1988, and in New Bern for over 20 years. During this time I substituted and tutored for Craven County Schools and "worked" as a stay-at-home mom with my three children. I have also taught all ELA middle school grades at Saint Paul's Catholic School in New Bern and 9th and 10th ELA at Goochland High School in Virginia. My oldest daughter is majoring in Elementary Education at UNCW. My younger daughter and son currently attend New Bern High School. So I have lots of "War Cub" and "Bear" pride!
This is my second year teaching at H.J. MacDonald. I currently teach 8th grade ELA. Two years ago, all three winners of the Rotary Club Essay Contest were my students! Last year, two of my students were published in the Twin Rivers Reading Council Young Author's Essay Contest. Reading and writing are passions of mine, as are children. I am active in the community - especially with children in the YMCA and local parks and recreation. I love teaching children and inspiriting them to become the best communicators and people they can be. Thank you for trusting me with your children. I will strive to give them the tools they need to successfully navigate the road ahead to the brightest future imaginable.
