Meet the Teacher

Welcome to my Classroom
Margaret Tierney

    I am very excited to be based at Weaverville Elementary School this year and also serve  Weaverville Primary school.  This is my fourth year as an AIG specialist; I have taught 1st, 3rd, and 4th as a classroom teacher. My husband Paul and I live in Weaverville with my children who both attend NB High. Paul has two children who attended NB High as well and are now in college and beyond.  I hold my AIG certification from Western Carolina, my B.A. from UNC-Greensboro, M.A. in English from UNC-Charlotte, and M.A.T. in Education from Queens University.  I grew up in Charlotte but have lived in the mountains for about a decade now. I enjoy hiking, reading, volunteering, and spending time with my family.  Research that I really encourage parents to read is "Growth  Mindset" vs. "Fixed Mindset."
