Stallings Teacher of the Year

The Teacher of the Year for 2019-2020 has been announced! Congratulations to Mrs. Castner! She has been teaching for over 12 years in both Virginia and North Carolina. She attended the College of William and Mary & the University of Phoenix. Her original plan in college was to become a veterinarian, however she changed her major after volunteering to become a reading tutor her freshman year because she fell in love working with elementary students. Outside of school Mrs. Castner loves to ride her bike, bake, and spend time with her family. She looks back on her favorite teachers in school and remembers that they fostered her love of reading and history and planned amazing lessons that stuck with her over the years. We are so lucky to have Mrs. Castner at Stallings, and we are so happy that she is our 2019-2020 Teacher of the Year!
