Name: Rhonda Broom
My name is Mrs. Rhonda Broom and I am the Academic Assistant at Oakridge Elementary. I grew up in New Jersey and then went to college at Coastal Carolina University where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education, met my husband, and fell in love with the south. After graduating I joined AmeriCorps NCCC program working in communities in the United States. I was stationed in Denver, Colorado and had a chance to work with the American Red Cross for flood and tornado relief in Texas, began mentor programs in schools in New Mexico, and rebuilt low-income housing in Kansas. From there my husband and I traveled to South Korea where we taught English in a private school just outside of Seoul for a year. After leaving Seoul we settled down in Charlotte, NC where I taught 2nd and 4th grade for eleven years. While teaching in Charlotte I earned my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction at UNCC and my National Board Certification in Literacy. We are still living in Charlotte with our two children. I taught third grade for four years at Crowders Creek Elementary and now look forward to working at Oakridge Elementary.
