My name is Mrs. Gretchen Baute and this is my 10th year teaching. I'm very excited to be teaching 2nd grade at Hickory Ridge Elementary. I have worked at Rocky River Elementary as a Title 1 Tutor and as a 2nd grade teacher. 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 24 years and have four children. Cameron, 21, is a Senior at Lenoir Rhyne University. Kierstin, 19, is a sophmore at UNCC. Raegan, 17, is a senior at Hickory Ridge High School and Caedon, 15, is a freshman at Hickory Ridge High School. We have lived in the Charlotte area for over 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. Oh the places we will go this year Cowboys!!
