First Day of School

August 15, 2018
Dear Parents and Caregivers,
Welcome back to the 2018-2019 school year!  We hope your summer was adventurous, fun, and relaxing. We can’t wait to begin our SUPER, SHINY, SPARKLY second grade year! This school year your student will grow tremendously both socially and academically. The ages of 7 and 8 are full of big developmental milestones. Be prepared to be amazed!

This is my 6th year at Brevard Academy and I am excited to make the switch from an EC teacher to a 2nd grade classroom teacher. I am certified in both Regular Education K-6th grade and EC K-12th grade. I have been teaching since 2003 after graduating from Appalachian State University. I am married to my college sweetheart and we have two daughters who also attend Brevard Academy. I grew-up in Brevard and love to explore these beautiful mountains any chance I get!  In my spare time I love to read, garden, and travel to new places.

About Ms. Marisol –  I am so excited to begin my second year at Brevard Academy as a Teacher Assistant in second grade with Mrs. Shober.  Along with Mrs. Shober we will strive to create and maintain an environment where your child can grow and SHINE. I am originally from the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, so I am very fluent in Spanish.  My husband and I moved to the Hendersonville area in 2004. I can’t wait to meet our second graders.  Thank you for sharing your precious children with us. We are going to have a SPARKLY school year.”

We believe every child has the potential to succeed and shine in their own individual way. We are so looking forward to a great year together. Below is one of my favorite quotes:

”Our Business”

“Ours is not the business of producing doctors, or lawyers, or teachers, or nurses, or scientist, or policemen, or sales people, or factory workers—or high test scores.

Ours is the business of producing smiles on young faces, happiness in young hearts, and dreams in young minds.

The rest will take care of itself.”     –Dan Seufert

Our Best,
Mrs. Kate Shober  & Mrs. Marisol Gollnick

Dream Big, Sparkle More, Shine Bright!
