Meet the Teacher

Welcome to my Classroom
Cara Pollard

I attended Samford University in Birmingham , Alabama . This is my sixteenth year teaching at Emma. I spent most of my career teaching first grade. I also served as a Curriculum Coach for Buncombe County Schools for two years. I earned a Masters degree from Mars Hill University last May. Working with me is Tonya Knupp. Ms. Knupp is a graduate of UNCA. She works in our classroom for two hours each morning.

I am excited to be teaching third grade this year. We will explore many new places, solve challenging problems, think deeply about our reading, and learn to listen to each other. Together we will build a community of learners.
