Hi! I’m Toni De Marco, the leader of the Superstar Team of Room 107! This is my 23rd year with the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools. I’ve been here at Morris Grove teaching kindergarten since it opened. I live with my 2 little lovies—a very active 17 month old boy named Luca and a small, black, furry toy poodle named Rocco. When I’m not teaching, I spend my time playing with my boys, reading, gardening, quilting, cooking for family & friends, and traveling. I used to say,”domestic or international, it doesn’t matter,” but now that I have a toddler, I have to hold off on the international travel for awhile. I am definitely looking forward to an exciting year of learning with your children—the Superstars of Room 107. Peace Love Geckos!

Hi! My name is Adam Glasser and I am a kindergarten teacher at Morris Grove Elementary School. I grew up in Chapel Hill and attended Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools from kindergarten through 12th grade. I went to UNC Chapel Hill where I majored in History and minored in Public Policy. After graduating, I moved to San Francisco where I served with AmeriCorps for a year at an elementary school. I then returned to North Carolina because I wanted the opportunity to teach in my home district. I enrolled in graduate school at the NC State School of Education, and I graduated in December 2017 with my Masters of Arts in Teaching in Elementary Education. 

 

Outside of school, I enjoy reading and playing soccer and basketball. I love to travel, especially to National Parks in the Western United States. This past summer I was a Teacher Ranger at Yosemite National Park in California! I am also one of the biggest Tar Heel basketball fans you will ever meet. 

 

This school year I hope to empower, inspire, and engage my students! Go Geckos!

Hi, I'm Miss. Kerr! I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with a degree in Elementary Education. (Go Heels!) I love teaching because there is never a dull moment!  My ultimate goal in teaching is to impact my students’ lives in two ways: 1) let them know they are special and loved, and 2) help them discover a passion and/or interest in learning. I am so excited to be a part of your child's and your family's life!

 
When I am not teaching, I love to bake, garden, and exercise. I grew up in Apex, North Carolina with my five brothers. My favorite food is cheesecake and my favorite color is blue. 
 
I am looking forward to a great year with your child. Welcome Explorers of Room 106!

Hi, I'm Ms. Kearns. I graduated from Elon University with a B.A. in Elementary and Special Education this past spring. I love teaching because I have a passion for discovering how individual people best learn and using that to help them grow! My primary goals for kindergarten are to: 1) Ignite a curiosity in my students about the world around them, 2) Develop an identity as a student and sense of belonging in our school, and 3) Learn to care for others in our community. I am so excited to be a partner with you in your student's education.

I grew up in Pittsburgh and moved to Durham officially over the summer. In my free time, I like to cook favorite family recipes, attend Durham Bulls games, and do anything craft-related! My favorite color is blue, I have two siblings (I'm the middle child), and my favorite flavor of ice cream is Edy's espresso chip!

I can't wait to see your student bloom in the "Kinder Garden" (Room 105).
