Mrs. Kellie Goins

Hello and welcome to the 8th grade!! 

My name is Mrs. Goins and I will be teaching 8th grade science this school year.  Throughout my teaching experience I have taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade math and science.  I have been at WLMS for 22 years and have been teaching for 27 years total.  WOW... to see that on paper is mind-boggling!!!  I catch mayself wondering where that time went.  I guess it is true, time FLIES when you are having FUN.  

I am a PROUD product of Lincoln County Schools.  I started my education at Crouse/Love Memorial Elementary, WLJH, and graduated at WLHS.  It wasn't until 10th grade biology that I started having ideas about pursuing teaching as a career.  

After graduation, I attended Gaston College where I earned an AA degrees in both math and science.  From there I attended both UNC-Wilmington and Appalachian State University.  

Upon finishing at App State, I started my teaching career at ELMS as an 8th grade science teacher.  Actually, I started with no grade level, no classroom, and no supplies.  I was just told that I would be teaching science somewhere in the building.  Whew, that was interesting. 

Besides teaching, I love to read, spend time with family, and anything that requires me to be outside.
