Mrs. Summerlin


Welcome to Second Grade!  This is my second year at G. W. Carver Magnet School for the Arts.  I previously taught for 9 years at Woodrow Wilson Elementary in first and second grade and as the STEM Lab teacher. Before becoming a teacher, I spent 8 years as a teacher assistant. I am currently working towards my Masters in School Administration degree through UNC-Charlotte. I am married, and the proud mom of two wonderful young men who are both married and providing me with my first grandchildren this year!

College(s) Attended/Degrees Earned: 
  • UNC Charlotte, BS Elementary Education 
  • Belmont Abbey College, Belmont NC 
  • Francis Marion University, Florence SC

Educational Philosophy/Vision:
If children believe in themselves, anything is possible. If children know someone believes in them, they will come to believe in themselves. I strive to be a champion for kids to foster their belief in themselves. I feel that the connections I make with our students' families are the foundation of our students' success. I look forward to getting to know my students and their families. Our partnership will be key in helping your child have the best year ever! The magnet school will provide our students with new experiences and expose them to opportunities they may not have experienced otherwise.
