Welcome to Mrs. Eldridge's First Grade Classroom!

Hi! My name is Charleen Eldridge. I am looking forward to my eighth year as a first grade teacher at Candler Elementary School! Prior to that, I was with Macon Program for Progress for four years as a teacher in the Early Head Start program. I also worked a number of years with the older kids at Mountain Youth Resources. I have two bachelor’s degrees, both coming from Western Carolina University. My earlier degree was in Parks and Recreation Management, with my second coming in Elementary Education grades K-6.

I was born and raised right here in the mountains of western North Carolina in Bryson City. I came from a family of seven children, and have always loved big families and lots of kids! I have a wonderful husband who (fortunately) loves to cook, and I love to garden and read.

I am looking forward to having your child in my classroom this year! I assure you that we will work diligently to assist him/her in achieving the highest goals they are capable of reaching!
