Mrs. Dew

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.
