2021 Heart & Luna-Soul
Teacher Appreciation Project
MEET OUR WINNERS!
I am originally from Long Island, NY. I moved to NC in 2009. I earned my undergrad degree in Elementary Education from York College and my Master’s Degree from Western Maryland College. I have 2 amazing children, Brittany and my son Michael. I started my teaching career in 1995 as a first grade teacher but have also spent time in second, fourth grade, pre-k, and long term sub in fifth grade and AU pre-K. I have also worked in an intervention position, reading resource role, and teacher trainer. I currently work as a Developmental Therapist for developmentally delayed children ages 0-3 and tutor students of various grade levels. I have enjoyed all of my teaching experiences for different reasons so it is difficult to choose which is my favorite, however I tend to gravitate to younger students. People are my passion and helping people in any way makes my heart happy and my life complete.
My name is Patience Adams and I am from Richmond, VA. I graduated from Chowan University with my Bachelors of Science Degree in 2015. I began my high school teaching career in December 2015 and for the past five years have been a business educator. This year, my sixth year as an educator, I’ve transitioned to the position of Special Populations Coordinator at Wakefield High School. I also have the privilege of being a track and volleyball coach at WHS.
