Mrs. Catharine Koonce

I am excited to be a part of the Virtual School for a second year teaching English 1 and 2. I taught at White Oak High School for four years before coming to the Virtual School and, prior to that, I taught at New Bridge Middle School. Before I was an English teacher, I was a music educator and worked at Camp Lejeune Dependent Schools. I taught K-12 general music, chorus, piano and  AP Music Theory. I have lived in Jacksonville since 1988 and my husband is a product of Onslow County Schools. I have two adult sons and 2 dogs. I love to read, garden and cook.
