Mrs. Tanya Price

I grew up in a military family so I have lived in many states, especially as a young child. I graduated from Wingate University with a degree in Elementary Education and from UNCC with a Master's degree in Reading Education. I have been teaching for over 20 years, most of my time was spent in Union County. This is my third year in Gaston County Schools and New Hope Elementary School. My husband David owns a business in Gastonia. We have two young sons - Ryan, a fifth-grader, and James, a kindergartener. I love to travel any chance I get and we always cheer on the Clemson Tigers!

Michael Solomon

My name is Michael Solomon and I am excited to start my 6th year here at New Hope. I am also very excited to return to 5th grade this year. I graduated from Ashbrook High School and attended Lees-McRae College where I graduated Summa Cum Laude. I have lived in Lincoln County for 18 years and love coming "home" every day to teach here in Gaston County. I am currently studying piano and am the head of the media ministry for my church. I also enjoy riding my mountain bike with my favorite trail being the Virginia Creeper Trail.
