Hello, wonderful second graders and families!  My name is Ms. Scheiner-Dendy, and I am so excited to be at the start of another school year at Haw Creek Elementary!  This will be my second year teaching 2nd grade at HCES, my 4th year working at HCES, my 8th year as a lead teacher, and the start of my 10th year with Buncombe County Schools.  

 Some of you may know that last year was an exciting year for me, as it was my first year "back in the saddle" as a full-time teacher after taking a break to focus on my family.  Prior to my time here at HCES, I taught 3rdgrade at Glen Arden Elementary until my daughter was born in 2009.  I remained involved in education by providing private tutoring services over the years and then eased back into my teaching career by spending a year working part-time as a STAR teacher and then a year as a 4th/5th grade assistant.  

I grew up in New York State and moved to Asheville in 2003.  While in New York State, I received my Bachelor’s in Philosophy & Religion and my Master’s in Teaching, K-6.  As a teacher, I love continuing to learn new ways to help students grow academically, socially, and emotionally.  It is my goal to create a nurturing classroom community where we will all feel welcome, appreciated, and supported as we take the risks necessary for learning and growth. 

Outside of school, you can find me enjoying family time with my husband and 8-year-old daughter, visiting with friends and extended family, hiking, kayaking, and biking.

I truly look forward to spending this year with your child and helping each student have a successful year in second grade.  I believe that parent-teacher communication is such an important part of a successful school experience for your child.  Please don't hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or concerns throughout the year.
