Degrees and Certifications:
I graduated from The University Of North Carolina Wilmington in December of 2015 with my BA in Elementary Education. I am licensed to teach grades K-through 6.
My name is Alice Whitney. Originally, I am from Farmington, Connecticut. When I was two years old, my family and I moved to Hubert, North Carolina. My family is very important to me... I am a big daddy's girl! I have four brothers, two sisters, seven nephews, and three nieces. On Halloween, my husband and I will celebrate our third wedding anniversary. Fall is my favorite time of year because the colors are beautiful and the weather is perfect. My husband and I love to be outside. Camping and kayaking are our favorite outdoor activities. Animals are a big part of my life. We have two dogs, five cats, five goats, twelve ducks, 30 plus chickens, and 2 turkeys. (our farm is still growing) They are all very spoiled and loved.
I have wanted to be an educator from the time I was in elementary school. My career goal is to earn a Master's degree in administration and become an Elementary School Principal.
I am excited to begin my third full year of teaching at Morton Elementary. This school year I will be teaching first grade! I started in February 2017 as a second-grade teacher and continued in second grade until June of 2019. Before my time at MES, I was a teaching assistant for five years for Exceptional Children and Regular Education at Queens Creek Elementary.
During college, I worked with various grade levels in K-12 and tutored several students in grades K-5 in math and reading.
As a teacher assistant, I was a coach for the QCE Dance Team and Girls on the Run.
