Welcome to my Classroom

Marilynn Whitcher
North Windy Ridge Intermediate

I am very excited to be teaching 5th grade, math and science, at North Windy Ridge!  I graduated from Appalachian State University with a B.S. in Elementary Education. I moved to Asheville, NC in August of 2008, from my hometown of Annapolis, MD. This is my 15th year teaching children!
I enjoy spending time outside: running, rock paddle boarding, hiking, or biking with my 9 year old hound mix, Sampson. I have traveled all over the world and appreciate the culture and experiences that travel has to offer!  

In 2014 I traveled to Spain and walked 300 miles across El Camino de Santiago. It was an amazing experience!
This summer of 2016 was spent traveling Indonesia!  I spent 3 weeks on Bali and Lombok.  I spent 3 days trekking the 2nd highest mountain in Indonesia and enjoyed the beaches and culture of this lovely country!
I am a certified yoga instructor and enjoy sharing my love of yoga with others. I am excited to share this love of yoga with students after school this year! I have also participated in the Mindful Schools online program and am thrilled to share mindfulness practices with students. It's a great way to have students center themselves and feel that sense peace from within.
I am constantly seeking growth! In December of 2012 I graduated with my Masters of Education, a concentration in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages through Western Carolina.
In November of 2014 I became a National Board Certified Teacher. These were both great accomplishments for me and I learned so much that I can incorporate in the classroom!
I teach 5th grade Math and Science and am partnered with Tiffany Harris, who teaches Social Studies and Language Arts.
