Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor's in Birth-Kindergarten Education
My name is Genine Foster, but the children know me as Mrs. Foster. I reside in Newton with my husband and two cocker spaniels that we love dearly. I am a graduate from Western Carolina University with a Bachelor's degree in Birth-Kindergarten Education. I graduated in May 2017 with honors. Prior to attending Western Carolina University, I attended CVCC and graduated with a associates degree in early childhood education in May 2014. For the past four years I worked for Iredell-Statesville Schools in a NCPK classroom as a teacher's assistant, as I was working on my degree through online classes at WCU. I have about 10 years in the preschool enviroment total. This is my first year as a certified teacher, and my first year with Catawba County Schools at Lyle Creek Elementary. I truly have a passion for teaching and early childhood education, I cannot imagine doing anything else! In my spare time outside of teaching I enjoy spending time with my husband, two dogs, crafting and shopping!
