Mrs. Andrea Carswell Elder

This is my 16th year teaching... I grew up here in Catawba County and I am a graduate of St. Stephens High School, class of '95!  After high school I attended CVCC for two years before transferring to ASU.  I started my teaching career at a small school in Burke County.  While there, an opportunity came open for me to move to Lyle Creek and I am so happy it did!  I love teaching in my community and running into my students at Walmart and other places close by.


I have been married for almost 17 years now and we have two children, Sarah (13) and Noah (9).  They keep us very busy with Scouts, soccer, and archery.


We have a dog named Ziggy and a horse named Casey.  As a family we LOVE being outdoors and having fun.    I've tried running.  I'm not really good at it yet, but my goal is to be able to run the majority  of a 5K in the spring.


For the last five years, I have spent my time teaching kindergartners.  I really enjoyed it, but...


I am loving my switch to 5TH grade!!!
