Mrs. Yvonne Ketchum
Make sure you watch our orientation video for our class.
I am a native of North Carolina. I graduated from White Oak High School and UNCW all right here in North Carolina. We moved out of North Carolina with the Air Force for 3 years and lived in Guam, but as soon as my husband got out of the Air Force we came back home!! I have a wonderful husband -Randy of 25 years (we were high school sweethearts) two grown children, a son in law and my very first granddaughter. She is pure sugar. :) I am an avid Carolina Basketball fan (GO HEELS!), love hazelnut coffee, ribeye steaks :) and going for walks with my dog, Winston. I am a member at Kellum Baptist Church and very active with my church family. I love my job and all the children I meet.
I have been in the education field for 21 years. I spent the first 7 years as a Teacher Assistant at Jacksonville Commons Elementary and Carolina Forest International Elementary Schools while finishing my Elementary Education Degree. I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from the University of North Carolina Wilmington. My first three years of teaching I taught 1st grade. I decided to embark on a new adventure and move to Kindergarten several :) years ago and I absolutely loved it! I am excited to begin a new year and cannot wait for it to begin
