Mrs. Yvonne Ketchum
I am a native of North Carolina. I graduated from White Oak High School and UNCW all right here in North Carolina. We moved out of North Carolina with the Air Force for 3 years and lived in Guam, but as soon as my husband got out of the Air Force we came back home!! I have a wonderful husband -Randy of 24 years (we were high school sweethearts) and two beautiful children. My daughter is married and wea re expecting our first granddaughter this May! My son works in Cherry Point iwth HVAC and loves to go hunting. I am an avid Carolina Basketball fan (GO HEELS!), love hazelnut coffee, ribeye steaks :) and going for walks with my dogs, Zeke and Winston (my baby). I am a member at Kellum Baptist Church and very active with my church family. I love my job and all the children I meet.
I have been in the education field for 20 years. I spent the first 7 years as a Teacher Assistant at Jacksonville Commons Elementary and Carolina Forest International Elementary Schools while finishing my Elementary Education Degree. I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from the University of North Carolina Wilmington. This is my eleventh year as a teacher at Carolina Forest International Elementary. My first three years of teaching I taught 1st grade. I decided to embark on a new adventure and move to Kindergarten several years ago and I absolutely loved it! I am excited to begin a new year and cannot wait for it to begin
