Mrs. Tilley-Kindergarten

I am so excited for another fun year in Kindergarten!  This will be my 13th year of teaching and my 7th year at Rocky River.  I taught Pre-k in Cabarrus County for 6 years before moving to Kindergarten.   I graduated from UNC- Charlotte with my Bachelors degree and also my Masters in Reading. 
My husband and I have 2 sons and 2 dogs.  I enjoy reading, art, and cooking.
