The Carter County School System will be operating on a regular schedule Tuesday, March 3, 2015.  This day was originally set aside for professional development.  Due to inclement weather and schedule changes, March 3rd will now be a regular school day.  All students and staff will report at normal time. 

All About Me

My name is Becky Simerly.  I've been married to my wonderful husband, Larry, for six years.  We have a 3 year-old son, Greyson, and a daughter, Kaylyn, who is 5 months old.  I also have a step-son, Jordan, who will be a freshman at ETSU this fall.  This school year will be my ninth year of teaching.  I taught for a year at Cloudland as a Title I Reading teacher and the rest have been spent at Happy Valley Elementary as a first grade teacher.  I attended Happy Valley from kindergarten to my senior year of high school.  I am proud to be teaching at my alma mater.  I will always be a Happy Valley Warrior!  I have both my Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Elementary Education, which were earned at ETSU.  Most of my time is spent with my children, but when I do have free time, I enjoy shopping, being outdoors, and going on vacations!
