About Me

about me

I’m Mrs. Padgett, and I’m from Youngsville, NC (just north of Raleigh). This is my fourth year teaching and my third year at Koontz. I attended Appalachian State University and received my degree in Middle Grades Language Arts and Social Studies Education. 

On July 7th, 2018, I married my favorite guy, and we moved to Asheville. We both love the mountains and the creativity that comes with our new city. One of our favorite things to do here is explore all of the unique restaurants and coffee shops.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my four nephews and one niece and playing with our puppy, Millie. Along with that, I also like eating Japanese food, hiking, drinking iced coffee, and traveling. If I’m not doing any of those things, you can probably find me listening to music and laughing at corny jokes.

I am really looking forward to learning and growing with you and your students this year. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have questions or concerns.
