Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Ivy White
I am a very energetic, serious person who love to shop, sing, dance, and play softball. I am the wife of my high school sweet heart and a retired marine. From this union, we have been blessed with three children and a grandson. I have worked in the Onslow County School System for many years. I begin as an assistant teacher in the kindergarten classroom at Southwest Elementary. Debra Bryant was the principal and the school had only been open five years before I entered. I really enjoyed my 12 years of being a teacher's assistant in kindergarten. I have also assisted in the first, second, third, fourth and fifth grades. However, I actually fell in love with teaching while assisting in the kindergarten classrooms. I decided to pursue a career in teaching. While going through college I thought about myself as a kindergarten teacher. I bought many kindergarten classroom items. I was beyond happy when I graduated. Kindergarten Here I Come!!! Nevertheless, I begin my career as a prekindergarten teacher. Five years later, I begin co-teaching at Southwest High School. I loved my year as co-teacher in language arts. However, my passion for teaching the little ones remains deeply in my soul. I am happily embarking on a journey of teaching first grade. It's not kindergarten, but close enough. Once I get the nuts and bolts turning without squeaking and everything organized, "It's On!" I am very flexible and always bloom where ever I am planted. I am loving it!
