Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome! My name is Gayle Oliver and I am currently a teacher here at Mabel. I have been teaching here since January of 2013 and have taught a several grades. I look forward to the adventures this new school year will hold.
I was born and raised here in Watauga County and attended Green Valley and Watauga High School. I graduated from Appalachian State University in 2012 with my bachelor degree in elementary education. I completed my master's degree in reading education in the summer of 2017 at AppState as well.
I am a dancer with a wide variety of training, but ballet will forever be my favorite kind of dance. I am an animal lover. I enjoy being outdoors, reading, and spending time with my family.
I am married to a wonderful man named Preston and we have one extremely handsome cat, Templeton, and another goofier cat, Mayzie. Templeton is a very regal and lazy cat, while Mayzie is a ball of energy and mischief, causing many laughs and groans. I often tell my students stories about them because they are so entertaining. We live on a small family farm here in Watauga County.
I look forward to meeting my new students and their families!
