Ms. Tovonia Safrit

I have been teaching in Cabarrus County for 24 years with the Head Start and NCPreK programs. I received my Bachelor's degree from UNCG, My B-K Teaching License from UNCC and 2 Master's degrees from Ashford.

Teaching is my passion, writing, reading, crafting and photography are my hobbies. I have 2 teenage children (Jada and Branden), a dog, and a cat. 

I have been an Irvin Eagle for 7 years and have proudly served the children and families in our community. 

I look forward to a wonderful year of play, building relationships with families and students, and learning together as a school family.
