Mrs. Ashton Utke

Hello! I am Mrs. Utke, your Social Studies teacher. 
I was born and raised in Lincoln county. I am a 2008 graduate of North Lincoln High School. I have not strayed too far from home, except for when I went off to college. Before venturing to Cullowhee, I attended Catawba Valley Community College and earned my Associates degree, so I could transfer to a four-year university as a junior. I graduated from Western Carolina University (GO CATS!) in December 2013 with bachelor's degrees in both History and Social Sciences Education. In January 2014 I was hired at East Gaston High School and spent 3 1/2 years there. I now have the pleasure to start this year at North Lincoln. Throughout my time as an educator, I have taught World History, OCS Social Studies, Psychology, Bible History, American History I and II, and Advanced Placement United States History. Outside of school, I love to bake, spend time with my family, and watch too much Netflix. I am married to my husband Aaron. We have one daughter and two dogs.
I look forward to getting to know each of you throughout the course of the semester!
