Kibbe, Tina (3rd Grade)

Meet the Teacher
I love to READ!

Welcome to my 3rd Grade Classroom!!

    My name is Tina Kibbe and I am so excited for my 4th year at Leicester Elementary School. I am a graduate of Mars Hill College having earned a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I love teaching and feel truly blessed to do something I love.
   I have been married to my wonderful husband for 18 years. We are foster parents for Buncombe County and are fortunate to have the opportunity to open our home to families in need.
   I LOVE third grade. It is an exciting year for students. This is a transitional year and with this transition comes letter grades and the End of Grade test. I strive for the classroom environment to be based around an atmosphere of acceptance and encouragement. I ask that my students work hard to support each other both academically and socially. 
   I want all of my students to succeed and believe that communication with parents, guardians, and/or caregivers will benefit this goal.  I am a collaborator, and I welcome your thoughts and ideas. I encourage volunteers to join our classroom. I look forward to the coming year and if you have a question or concern please feel free to call and/or email me.
