Literacy Coach

A Gainesville native and UF grad, Mrs. Carlton came to Hardee County after marrying a hometown boy, Mark Carlton. She started at North Wauchula Elementary as a third grade teacher in 2004, having previously taught 1st, 3rd, and 5th in Alachua County. She later switched to fifth grade to help establish the REACH program at NWES. In 2014-2015, she took on the duties of Literacy Coach to provide support to her peers in classrooms throughout the school. She has a Master's Degree in Elementary Education and is certified in Grades 1-6 and Reading K-12 as well as carrying an endorsement for teaching ESOL students. 

Her great loves, besides her husband, include kids, books, singing, and volleyball. She helped orchestrate the creation of an after school chorus club that is now entering its third year. She herself sings at Church of the Resurrection Catholic Church in Lakeland, Fl. In the early half of the spring, you'll likely find her in the gym as the Head Coach for girls' volleyball at Hardee Junior High.

Her favorite saying? "Learn something new every day!"
