Ms. Crystal Carney

Hi, Bethel families! My name is Crystal Carney and I am so excited to join the Bethel Bengals this year! I have taught for the past 18 years as a Learning Support teacher in a private school, teaching students with and without learning challenges. I earned my B.S. degree in Psychology at UNCC in 1998, then earned my Master of Arts degree in Teaching from Pfeiffer University in 2007. I began my Orton-Gillingham training in 2006 and have enjoyed seeing the growth my students have made over the years using this multisensory teaching approach ever since.

I am an NC native and have lived in downtown Concord for the past 19 years and I love it! I have 3 children, all girls, including a set of twins! My girls have all gone through Cabarrus County Schools and now attend JN Fries and Central Cabarrus. Cabarrus County has felt like home for a long time and Bethel Elementary already feels the same! I am so very grateful and blessed to join this wonderful community of Bethel and look forward to this school year teaching IN-PERSON! :)

Welcome back to school, y'all! It's going to be an awesome year!
