Burton, Stacey - 1st Grade

Mrs. Stacey Burton (1st  Grade Teacher)
Mrs. Burton
      Welcome to 1st grade! This is my 12th year at Glen Arden and my 18th year of teaching. My first four years at Glen Arden were spent teaching kindergarten followed by six years as a third grade teacher. I was ready for a change and moved to second grade last year and was excited for the opportunity to teach first grade this year. I really enjoy new experiences and challenges!  In addition to teaching here in North Carolina, I have also taught third and fourth grades in Ohio and preschool in Vermont. I have loved experiencing different grade levels over the years and learning from amazing educators and students of all ages!
     Originally, I am from Columbus, Ohio (GO BUCKEYES!) and moved to Asheville about eleven years ago.   I received my Bachelor's degree from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. My husband and I have a 4 year old son, Eli, who is the light of our lives! He makes us laugh everyday and keeps us very busy! On the weekends, we enjoy outdoor activities such as  hiking, going to festivals, and exploring downtown Asheville and the surrounding mountains.  I also enjoy (but don't have much time for) coloring, crafts, reading, gardening and photography. We love traveling (especially to the beach!). We also travel to Ohio several times a year to visit our friends and family.
    Teaching at Glen Arden has been a wonderful experience and I plan to continue here for many years to come! Please feel free to contact me by phone, note or email if you have any questions or concerns.
