My name is Carey Stewart and I committed to graduate from Westhill
Central High School in Syracuse, New York in 1997. Go Warriors! Royal
blue and white will always be dear to my heart. I enjoyed participating
in Art Club, Environmental Club, Ski Club, Spanish Club, and swam
competitively. I loved going to the football games at my school with my
friends and family. While I was in high school, my school won many
state championships in Girls and Boys Soccer and Basketball. Our school
stressed the importance of academics, a high standard of conduct on and
off the field, and teamwork. To be eligible to participate in
athletics and clubs, students needed to have passing grades and
I then committed to graduate again in 2001 from the State University
of New York at Oswego where I studied Elementary Education with a
concentration in Social Studies. College was challenging, but really
fun. I enjoyed going hiking with friends and attending hockey games.
After graduation, I moved to Virginia to teach first grade. As my
adventure as a teacher continued, I enjoyed teaching kindergarten,
second, third, and fourth grade. My experience as a classroom teacher
influenced my decision to return to school in 2004, while teaching full
time to obtain my Master of Education in Educational Leadership. I
wanted to have a larger impact on teaching and learning. I graduated
from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2006 and then served as a
teacher and administrator in Richmond.
I relocated to the New River Valley in 2012, and now reside in
Christiansburg. My first year in Montgomery County Schools was as a
third grade teacher. The following year, I served as an Instructional
Specialist. I love being a frog, and the Assistant Principal at Falling
Branch Elementary. Falling Branch is a special place. We have a
wonderful community of students, families, and teachers.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I
love to read. Curling up with a book on a rainy day is an adventure. I
also enjoy spending time outdoors hiking and gardening. I look forward
to a wonderful year. Go Frogs!
