Mrs. Maria Childers

My name is Maria Childers and I am the Communities In Schools Student Support Specialist.  I support my students by helping with organization, core classwork, homework, goal setting and pairing them with mentors.  I was born and raised in Lincoln County and I am a graduate of West Lincoln High School.  I attended Appalachian State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Social Work degree.  I have taught for 24 years in Lincoln County Schools.  I live in Cherryville, NC with my husband Chip, my daughter Madison and my son Jackson.  I am the co-coach of the NLMS Cheerleaders and I also coach the boys and girls soccer teams.  In my spare time, I love to coach, read, sing, listen to podcasts, and participate in productions by the Lincoln Theater Guild.
