Welcome to Our Classroom
Dorothy Knight

Jennifer Young
Instructional Assistant 


Mrs. Knight has been teaching at Weaverville Primary School for 20 Years. She currently holds licenses in Regular Education, Special Education and has an Academically Gifted  Endorsement.  Her favorite subjects to teach are Reading, Social Studies and  Science and she is always finding new ways to make instruction more fun and exciting for her students.  When she is away from the classroom, she loves to be with her husband, son and daughter; and snuggling up with a good book and her three rescued dogs.  "My passion is reading. It is a gift that can take you anywhere at anytime, providing excitement, help, education,  or inspiration whenever we need it. The ability to read is a gift we all need to give ourselves." 
Mrs. Knight has recently developed a love for fly fishing.  She also has been practicing yoga for several years now , and is certified to teach  Children's Yoga .  In 2012, she made the trip to the Himalayas and had the wonderful opportunity to meet the people of Bhutan.

Mrs. Young: I have been teaching at Weaverville Primary for 12 years. I graduated Mars Hill College in 2010 with a bachelor's degree in education K-6 with a license in regular education. I love to work with the students and love to talk to them. They say some of the funniest things that just makes my day shine brighter. I have been married for 22 years to my wonderful husband and have a beautiful daughter who I love dearly. We have  adopted a little dog who we named Cody and love to spend time playing chase with him. I am looking so forward to this year with Mrs. Knight and working with the students.
