Mrs. Kristine Mortimer

Hi, my name is Mrs. Mortimer, and I am very excited to teach 3rd grade this year! This is my second year at Silverdale; I have been working as a Teacher Assistant with various EC classes in the Onslow County School District and aboard Camp Lejeune for the past few years. In addition, I have experience teaching Kindergarten through 5th Grade in New York and California. Silverdale has truly become my home away from home, and I am excited to get to know each and every one of you!

I am and will always be a New Yorker, but I have lived in NC for over 14 years and love everything this amazing state has to offer! I was born in NJ, adopted when I was 4 days old and grew up on Long Island, NY. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and Sociology from Hofstra University and my Master’s Degree in Instructional Technology from New York Institute of Technology. My husband and I have been married for over 17 years, and we have two amazing children. Andrew is a junior at Swansboro HS and Abby is in 8th Grade at Swansboro MS. We have four adorable dogs named Daisy, Gizmo, Moosh and Ike who love going to Dairy Queen with us to get "pup cups" of vanilla ice cream! 

When I am not at school or planning our lessons, I enjoy spending time with my family outdoors or relaxing at home. I love going shopping with my daughter, drawing or painting, and I have always enjoyed putting together puzzles. I am looking forward to sharing my passions with my "terrible and rotten" monsters (your awesome children)!
