Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! I'm Mrs. Cloninger!
I attended North Brook as a child and graduated from West Lincoln High School. After receiving a Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary Education from Gardner-Webb University, I began teaching at North Brook in 2006.
My husband, Bradley, and I live in the North Brook community. We have two daughters, Aniston (9) and Harper (4). We have three furbabies--a minature schnauzer, Lucy; a goldendoodle, Cooper, and a tuxedo cat, Whiskers. I'm an avid reader, a blogger, a Braves fan, and a lover of all things monogrammed.
Growing up, my dad often told me that if I found a career I loved, I would never "work" a day in my life. No truer words have ever been spoken. I honestly get up every day and live my dream! The staff, students, and community at North Brook Elementary have blessed my life in so many ways, and I am so grateful to be a part of this wonderful place.
I believe that every child that walks through my classroom door is special, unique, and a gift. I am honored to be a part of his or her education, and hope that they'll always look back on their third grade year with fondness. I aspire to create joy, foster a love of learning, and make a difference in each student's life.
