Hello, I am Mrs. Ladd and I will be teaching third grade at West View. I obtained my Bachelors Degree from ETSU. This will be my fifth year teaching. I completed my student teaching in first grade in Elizabethton. I have taught third, fourth, and second grade in Washington County. My goal is to create a safe and engaging learning environment for my students. I truly want them to love coming to school. My mother has taught for 38 years and is currently still teaching sixth grade in Washington County. My father worked in education for over 30 years as a teacher and then a principal. My parents are the reason I have such a passion for educating others.
I am married to my husband, Patrick. Patrick and I met at Kroger where we worked together for four years. We have a boxer puppy, Admiral, who brings us so much joy. We enjoy hiking and camping as a family in the beautiful mountains of East Tennessee.
