Degrees and Certifications:
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!
