Meet The Third Grade Team -
Mrs. Boff, Mrs. Carpenter and Mrs. Ebert
Meet Mrs. Boff
Mrs. Boff and her family moved five years ago from Connecticut. This will be her 17th 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 married in January of 2018 and lives in Kentucky while her youngest daughter is a Sophomore in High School and is very active in Marching Band.
During the school year, she loves to tell many stories about her dogs. Prince Louie is a Corgi Lab mix, Rosie is a sweet little Yorkie Terrier mix, and Bella who showed up on her doorstep in February 2018 is a Border Terrier mix. All three 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 read, cook, and travel.
Meet Mrs. Carpenter
Mrs. Carpenter has been teaching elementary school for 19 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 12 and Ryan is 7. 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.
Mrs. Ebert has been teaching for 32 years. She feels so fortunate that her entire career has been right here at Oakwood Elementary! She has taught 3rd grade, 4th grade, and a combination class of 2nd and 3rd grades together. Her favorite grade to teach is third!
Mrs. Ebert is a graduate of Lenoir-Rhyne University and lives in Hickory.
She is married with two daughters. Lindsey, her oldest daughter, is also a LRU graduate with her nursing degree. Hayley, her youngest daughter, graduated from Presbyterian College (Go Blue Hose) in South Carolina and is currently pursuing her Masters Degree from Clemson.
In her spare time, Mrs. Ebert enjoys going to most sporting events, shopping at Target, going to the beach, and spending time with her family!
Meet Ms. Allen
Ms. Allen has joined the Oakwood staff as a third grade student teacher working in Mrs. Ebert's classroom. Majoring in Elementary Education, Ms. Allen attends Appalachian State University and will be part of the third grade team through December 2019. Ms. Allen is engaged to be married this fall and in her spare time enjoys reading and spending time with her precious cats!
