Mrs. Darla Stines
2019-2020 is my 25th year at ELMS in the 8th grade. I grew up in Dever, NC. I graduated from ELHS, then attended Lenoir-Rhyne College. From there, I have a Bachelor's Degree in Education with a concentration in Middle School Math. Upon graduation, I enrolled in the Master's (Kindergarten thru 6) program at the College of Charleston. It was 1995 that I began teaching here at ELMS. In 2006, I obtained my National Boards. Three years after that, I completed a program through Appalachian State that extened my Master's Degree through 9th grade. In 2016, I successfully renewed my National Boards certification.
On the home front, my daughter, Ellanor, is in First Grade. My husband and will be celebrating 21 years of marriage this November. We have a 12 year old cat, Leo, a one year old cat, Reese Cup, and a one year old Lab mix, Gracie, that completes our family.
