April Morton has lived in Mebane her entire life. She is married to a High School Math teacher, so education plays a key role in her daily home life. She has two young daughters whom she adores and they recently turned one and five. She graduated from UNC-Greensboro and also has a degree in Deaf Education. Later, she added on a Special Education Teaching License.
She worked for the NC State of Health and Human services in the Deaf Division and then transitioned into the public school system. Her experience ranges from a K-3 classroom to High School. For the last 6 years, she has worked with a wide range of exceptional students with varying abilities. She has taught virtually every subject, but enjoys English/Language Arts the most.
She is excited to make the transition to Kindergarten at ACS this year! For the past several years, she has led a camp for Kindergarten - Eighth Graders. She loves working with young children and teaching them new concepts, especially her own 5 year old daughter who will start Kindergarten this year! She is fluent in American Sign Language and can't wait to include it in her classroom lessons.
In her free time she enjoys reading, baking, crafting, playing with her daughters and watching football. The two most important things for her as a teacher is wanting her students to know that she cares about them as individuals and that she is a contributing factor for their development in becoming amazing people!
