Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Ms. Tharrington and I am so excited to start my 3rd year of teaching in kindergarten with you and your child! I have spent the last two years, and my training years, in 1st grade. I have had some amazing opportunities teaching in other areas of our great state, but I can't wait to start this new school year at Buies Creek Elementary!
I graduated from East Carolina University (GO PIRATES!) in 2017 with my Bachelors in Elementary Education with a concentration in Child Development and Family Relations. Last year, I had the honor of working with the MORE Project by Harvard University — Led by Professor James S. Kim. READS stands for Research Enhances Adaptations Designed for Scale in Literacy. Early this year, I earned my Targeted Reading Intervention certificate from UNC-Chapel Hill. In my free time, I love sailing with my fiance plus my dog Maggie, spending time with my family and exploring new places.
This year is going to be an awesome year! I can't wait to meet and get to know your "tiny human" as I like to call them. It is important that we work and grow as a team. You will see amazing things happening this year in kindergarten and I am excited I get to be on this journey with you!
