Mrs. Boff, Mrs. Carpenter and Mrs. Rogers
Meet Mrs. Boff
Mrs. Boff and her family moved nine years ago from Connecticut. This will be her 21st year of teaching. Prior to joining the education field, she worked in the private sector in Human Resources.
Mrs. Boff received her Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and Psychology from Western Connecticut State University. She also attended WCSU to obtain her Master's degree in Elementary Curriculum.
Mrs. Boff has been married for over 30 years. She has two daughters. Her oldest daughter is a Social Worker and lives in upstate New York while her youngest daughter is a Sophomore at UNC Chapel Hill studying Physics.
During the school year, she loves to tell many stories about her dogs Rosie and Bella. Rosie is a sweet little Yorkie Terrier mix and Bella who showed up on her doorstep in February 2018 is a Border Terrier mix. Both dogs do silly things for Mrs. Boff to discuss and make great stories for when she is modeling how to write a personal narrative.
In Mrs. Boff's spare time, she likes to garden, read, cook, and travel.
Meet Mrs. Carpenter
Mrs. Carpenter has been teaching elementary school for 23 years now. She has always taught at Oakwood, but has experience in 5th, 2nd and 3rd grades. Of course, she thinks 3rd grade is the best! Mrs. Carpenter loves to see her students grow, change, and learn so many new skills over the course of the year.
Mrs. Carpenter is married and has two children - Allyson is 16 and Ryan is 11. She enjoys spending time with her family - playing games, cooking, and shopping. Her favorite thing to do to relax is to watch just about anything on the Food Network.

University. After several years of teaching fifth grade, her and her family began the slow move across the United States.
