Ms. Tori Carpenter
I was born in Florence, SC, but we soon moved to Raleigh, NC. I lived there until I left for college, UNCW, go Seahawks! After college, I kept moving back and forth from ocean life to city life, but in the end my heart belongs to the sea! I have three wonderful dogs that make my life very interesting.
I am a proud graduate of The University of North Carolina at Wilmington from the Watson College of Education. I graduated in 2000 with a bachelor's in elementary education and a concentration in mathematics. I also earned my National Boards Certification in Middle Childhood Generalist in 2006 and renewed it in 2016.
I have spent the last 22 years teaching in grades 3rd through 5th. The last ten years, I have taught in Onslow County and was recognized as the school level 2015-2016 STEM Teacher of the Year, 2016-2017 School-Level Teacher of the Year, and 2017-2018 Tech Savvy Teacher of the Year.
This year,2022-2023, I begin a new journey at Silverdale Elementary School. I will teach 4th grade math, social studies, and science and I am excited about this change.
