Bachelor's Degree: Special Education- Pfeiffer University


This year I am entering my 5th year of teaching Special Education. I have been lucky enough to have a variety of experiences in my short career. My very first year of teaching, I was fortunate enough to teach a self contained class for students with Autism at Berryhill Elementary School in Milton, Florida. Then we moved to Carlsbad, California where I had the opportunity to work at a Nonpublic school for students with Autism for 6 months. After moving back to North Carolina in 2012, I was hired as the 6th grade inclusion teacher at Swansboro Middle School. The following year a self contained classroom was created at SBMS for students will Autism and I took over that role for two years. I took the 2015-2016 school year off to stay at home with my new baby (born October 2015). I am so excited to be back at Swansboro Middle and to be teaching 7th grade Inclusion! It's going to be a great year to be a Pirate!


HI! My name is Mrs. Baucom! I was born in Mobile, Alabama but moved to Newport, NC when I was 4 years old, so I consider myself a Carolina girl! I graduated from Croatan High School in 2005 and attended Pfeiffer University (near Charlotte) on a Cross Country and academic scholarship. While at Pfeiffer I met my Husband! He joined the Marine Corps after he graduated and we have lived all over the place since then (Pensacola, Fl and Carlsbad CA). Fortunately, the Marine Corps brought us back "home" and we settled in "the Boro." We love living here and truly consider it home. Last October (2015) we welcomed our first baby, Aria! I took the year off to stay at home with her and have loved every minute of it. We also have a 6 year old Shih-poo, Kingsley and two cats, Aly and Winston! I enjoy reading, running, soccer, cooking and most importantly the GREEN BAY PACKERS!
