Mrs. Connie B. Tolhurst


I am from Detroit, Michigan.  I am a military wife to my high school sweetheart and we will be celebrating our 15th anniversary this year.  We have two boys- Joshua (8 years) and Noah (5 years)- who are both attending Carolina Forest this year!  

I have been at Carolina Forest since February of 2016.  I began teaching second grade and have truly enjoyed working with this grade level.  I feel very honored to have the ability to allow children in my classroom prepare for 3rd grade and life:)

I have my bachelors degree in Elementary Education (k-8) and my masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction.  I worked for many years with preschool in 29 Palms, California.  I then had my son, Joshua, and chose to stay home with my son.  I ran an in home childcare and still volunteered at many schools in Jacksonville, NC.   We then moved to Beaufort, SC where I completed my student teaching and had my second son, Noah.  I then completed my masters degree while running an in home childcare and being a Drill Instructor's wife.  

We moved back to Jacksonville, NC in 2016 and were blessed to become part of the Carolina Forest Family.

I am so excited to be a part of your child's educational journey.  I know that this will be a very blessed and amazing year!
