I  have two wild boys who I love with all my heart. I have loved teaching since 1997 when I graduated from UNCC. I have taught Kindergarten, First, Third and Fifth grades. Kindergarten is my love. Kindergartners are so energetic and loving. It is very exciting to see the sparks fly when they learn to read, write and count. I couldn't ask for a better job.

Hello my name is Cherie Feemster I am a wife, mom, and an educator, I have two beautiful children and a I am originally from Winston-Salem NC now residing in Gastonia NC for 7 years.  I have been in the Early Education field for 14 years and I am excited about this year as a Kindergarten teacher here at Brookside Elementary.  I have a Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education from Ashford University and currently obtaining my Masters of Arts at NC A&T State University.  My biggest take away from being an educator is the ability to see and also be apart of the growth and development of each individual child.  The joy and excitement that kindergartners bring to the classroom is something that I look forward to everyday! There is no place I would rather be than the classroom!
