Mrs. Sommer Gentry

Hello!  Welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Sommer Gentry and I am proud to be a product of Harnett County Schools.  I grew up here in Harnett County and went to Boone Trail, Western Harnett Middle, and Western Harnett High School.  I am an 9th year Kindergarten teacher at Lillington-Shawtown.  I began my teaching career here at Lillington-Shawtown 12 years ago in the Preschool Disabilities classroom.  I received my bachelors degree from Campbell University in Family and Consumer Sciences with a concentration in Child Development.  I graduated and became general manager of Howard's Barbecue and worked there for the next two years.  I was offered a job at Western Harnett High School in the Family and Consumer Sciences department and decided that it was a great career move.  I began my journey as a lateral entry teacher and began teaching at LSES in 2007.  During that time I recieved my License to teach Birth- Kindergarten through North Carolina Central University. I was honered to be LSES's teacher of the year in 2012.  I love my students, fellow teachers, and school.  

I have been married to my husband, Chip Gentry for 4 years and together we have 4 wonderful children (Marlee, Charli, Harrison, and Austin).  We have a Falconry business in which we enjoy training birds of prey and teaching others about the sport.  Our life is busy and full of adventures at all times.  

I look forward to working with you and your child this year as we learn, play, explore and most of all...HAVE FUN!  Teaching is a passion of mine and I strive to meet if not exceed standards when it comes to teaching your child.
