McAlister, Kayleigh - 8th ELA

Kayleigh and momThank you for taking the time to make me feel welcomed to the CCMS family. Below is a small bio about myself:

My name is Kayleigh McAlister. I was born in South Carolina but was raised in Haywood County, NC. Being a teacher is the only career I ever aspired to do. In second grade, I was in a reading buddy program where I was fortunate enough to get to read to a kindergarten class that my younger sister was in, twice a week and I knew that was what I wanted to do forever. I graduated from Haywood Early College in 2013 with my high school diploma and an Associate in Arts. Then, I went to Western Carolina University where I graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science in Middle Grades Education. During my second and third years of teaching I went back to Western Carolina University to get my Master's in Middle Grades Education: Literacy. I am currently certified to teach 6th-9th grade English Language Arts and Social Studies. I am thankful to be apart of the Cane Creek Middle School family and look forward to teaching here for many years to come!
