Degrees and Certifications:
BS Accounting Graduate Certificate in Elementary Education (K-6) Glee Certified
My name is Eileen Dew, and I am very excited to be a Hickory Ridge Cowboy teaching First Grade for the eighth year. I am a native New Yorker but absolutely love the weather and atmosphere in North Carolina.
I earned my Bachelor of Science in Accounting at Ithaca College in New York and used it in Banking for 12 years. I discovered my passion for teaching while employed as a preschool educator, so I went back to school and earned my Graduate Certificate in Elementary Education from UNC Charlotte. I completed my Global Educator Badges at Harrisburg Elementary expanding my knowledge of global awareness, and I developed lessons teaching students how to be global citizens. In addition, I am Glee Certified and a Seesaw Pioneer!
I have two children, Eddie (18) and Anna (16), who keep me very busy when I'm away from school. Our family enjoys playing sports and traveling.
I look forward to a fabulous First Grade year filled with curiosity, patience, flexibility, growth and learning.
