Mrs. Toni Morris

Welcome to Second Grade!  Let me tell you about myself....My name is Toni Michelle Morris and I have taught a total of 25 years. This is my 24th year in Craven County and in North Carolina. I taught 1 year in Maryland. I have been at VFLE all 24 years.  My first year here I taught AIG at Farmlife and other schools in the county. Then I taught Kindergarten for 15 years and in 2012 I was moved to fourth grade, and taught there for 5 years. This is my 3rd year in Second Grade. I am not originally from Vanceboro, but I have lived here now for the last 12 years. I live in Vanceboro with my husband Keith (he works at West Craven High School) and two of our children, Michaela - 20 and Austin - 13.  Our other daughter, Kelsie graduated from NC State and is married to our awesome son-in-love Trey.  They live in New Bern. We have 23 beautiful grandaughters; Raleigh, Reagan and Charlotte.    Before moving to Vanceboro I lived in New Bern.  I grew up all over the east coast, moving 14+ times as a child growing up.  My family is originally from New Bern and they returned home to retire. I followed my family and that is how I ended up here.  I spent most of my years growing up around the Baltimore/Washington Metropolitan area. I lived as far north as Pittsburgh, PA and as far south as Louisiana & Alabama. I attended Shepherd College (now Shepherd University) in WV and received my BS in Elementary Education from there.  I also have a Birth-K add on license that I received from UMBC (University of Maryland, Baltimore Campus).  I am also a certified AIG teacher.  I received that add on in my first few years in Craven County. It is fair to say that I have been a "city" girl most of my life, but the small town living has grown on me and I love Vanceboro and Vanceboro Farm Life Elementary.  Summer is my favorite time of year.  I love to go to the beach and soak up the sun.  My favorite summer activity is going out on our boat with my family.  I also like Fall when the temperature changes and the days get cooler. I also like to read and watch movies.
