Mrs. Anna Gilbert

Hello, my name is Anna Gilbert and I am very excited for the opportunity to serve as Assistant Principal of Union Elementary. I am a proud graduate of Lincoln County Schools and have been in education for over 15 years.  In 2005, I obtained my bachelor’s degree from Lenoir-Rhyne University in Elementary Education and began teaching within the Hickory Public School system.  Before coming home to Lincoln County Schools in 2014, I received my master's degree in Elementary Education from Appalachian State University.  I have a passion for learning and education, so I am continuously  looking for ways to grow as an educator. While teaching at Norris S. Childers Elementary, I worked towards and acquired my Masters in School Administration from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

My husband, Jeremy, and I have one daughter, Rachel,  as well as our sweet Golden Retriever, Junior.  We enjoy spending time with our family and friends, being outside as much as possible, and traveling any chance we get. 

I am looking forward to working with the staff, students, parents, and community of Union Elementary and am hopeful that the 2021-2022 school year is the best yet!
