About Me


I’m Mrs. Padgett, and I’m from Youngsville, NC (just north of Raleigh). This is my second year teaching, and I’m so excited to be at Koontz! I attended Appalachian State University and received my degree in Middle Grades Language Arts and Social Studies Education. My husband and I just got married in July and moved to Asheville, and we are loving it so far.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my four nephews, and I 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.
