Welcome to Eighth Grade Language Arts and Team Autobots!
 

My name is Kaleigh Oliver.  I'm originally from Morganton, North Carolina.  In 2012, I graduated from UNC Charlotte with a Bachelor of Arts in Middle Grades Education with concentrations in English/Language Arts and Math and a minor in Women and Gender Studies. In May 2017, I graduated with a Master of Education in Middle and Secondary Education with a concentration in English/Language Arts. This is my sixth year at CC Griffin, and I could not be more excited! I am also the 8th Grade Cheerleading Coach and an advisor for GSSA.  Go, Gryphons!
