Hello! My name is Carla Wood and I am excited to be starting my fifth year teaching at Austin Tracy Elementary School. I will be teaching first grade again this year.This will be my third year teaching first grade. I love everything about it!
My educational career began in 2010 as a substitute for the Barren County School System. I graduated from Western Kentucky University in May 2012 with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. In 2013 I was very fortunate to be hired on at Austin Tracy to work with 2nd and 3rd graders in math and literacy and all primary students in music. I have taught a little bit of everything since then. I am currently working on obtaining my masters degree in Library Media Education.
I live in Tracy with my husband Korey and our son, Carson. I have lived in the community of Tracy my whole life. I attended Austin Tracy Elementary School as a child just as my father and grandmother did before me. I am very excited to be back at the school that gave me my begining education as well as many great memories. I am very lucky to be working with such wonderful staff here, some of which were teachers of my own and helped inspire me to go into the educational field.
I am glad that you have taken a few moments to learn about me. I hope to learn more about your child and family as the year goes on.
