My name is Katy Chadwick. I grew up in Craven County and attended New Bern High School. I was accepted into The University of North Carolina at Wilmington as a teaching fellow. In college, I worked with children in grades kindergarten-fifth. I completed my student-teaching in fourth grade at Codington Elementary in Wilmington. I believe that UNCW helped me develop an energetic and hands-on approach to teaching.
After graduating from UNCW in 2011, I was offered a position to teach fifth grade at James W. Smith in Cove City, NC. I spent five years working alongside the most dedicated and motivated teachers. I served as a Title 1 Math Interventionist at Vanceboro Farm Life Elementary School for one year. I enjoyed getting to know a new group of teachers and I adored the students that I worked with. In 2017, I returned to JWS and taught fifth grade for 3 more years! This year I am so excited to be with the staff and students at RBA. I will be an instructional/curriculum coach.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband, camping, playing kickball, frisbee, tennis, and playing with our puppy. Most importantly, I had a baby in December of 2019. Jackson Clay is the perfect addition to our family! He brings us so much joy and happiness!
