Research suggests that children can lose almost three months of instructional knowledge if they don’t keep their minds active over the summer.

Congratulations to Miss Melissa Kirby for being nominated as Long Creek Elementary's Teacher of the Year!!!!!
Ms. Kirby entered the teaching profession in 2007 and she summarizes her experiences below:
“I have been lucky to have a wide range of experiences. I started teaching in Chicago, IL in a middle school classroom. She taught 6th-8th grade science and 7th grade Language Arts. During her first three years of teaching, I also took time to earn a masters degree in Reading Intervention. I also joined a reading research team for Chicago Public Schools. During those three years I was a member of a team that implemented best practices in schools around the city. I planned with professionals from all over the country and even Arne Duncan, who is now the Secretary of Education for the United States. On this team I worked in the two most "at risk" areas of the city and helped other classroom teachers implement these best practices. My 4th year teaching I decided I was ready to try a different grade so I moved to a 3rd grade classroom in a charter school. Here I learned amazing balanced literacy procedures and I was really able to use my Reading Intervention Degree and fell in love with teaching this grade. In 2011 I decided I wanted warmer weather and a new great city, so I packed up and moved to Charlotte. I quickly discovered a wonderful city with amazing schools. I worked at Piney Grove Elementary for two years as a 3rd grade teacher. It was a great place to grow and learn in CMS. Yet, Lake Norman was calling my name so I found a house in the Cornelius area and looked for an excellent school in the area. I found Long Creek! I've been at Long Creek for two years now and I love everything about it. My 3rd grade students make me smile every day and work to be their best all day long. The staff at Long Creek is one that every teacher hopes to find one day, we work together, enjoy each other’s company, and we all want our students to be extremely successful. We also have wonderful parents who offer their time and support daily. I'm so lucky to be a teacher at Long Creek and I look forward to many more years here!”
Congratulations to Mrs. Charlene Izzard for being nominated by her peers for Teacher Assistant of the Year!!!!

“Through my many years in education, I’ve had the privilege of working with many children that I have seen grow into mature and successful individuals. Knowing that everything I do, whether great or small, has a positive impact on a child’s life keeps me inspired to continue to do my best to ensure that each child reach his or her full potential. There’s nothing greater and more meaningful than the gift of providing a positive learning experience for all children.”
