Mrs. Gretchen Baute-Second Grade
My name is Mrs. Gretchen Baute and this is my eighth year teaching. This is my first year full time teaching at Rocky River Elementary. Last year I was a Title One Tutor working with fourth and fifth grade students in reading and math. Before that I taught for 5 years at Patriots STEM Elementary School in first and second grades. I also taught for two years in Burlington, NC in fourth grade before having my first child. My husband Brian and I have been married for 23 years and have four children. Cameron, 20, is a sophomore at Lenoir Rhyne University. Kierstin, 18, is a senior at Hickory Ridge High School. Raegan, 16, is a sophomore at Hickory Ridge High School and Caedon, 14, is a 7th grader at Hickory Ridge Middle School. We have lived in the Charlotte area for 12 years and love it! I am originally from Indiana and graduated from Indiana State University with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Special Education. I am super excited to be teaching second grade at the Rock!
