My name is Mrs. Thaxton, and I'm excited to be here at OES - Home of the Lynx!
I'm Hawaiian. I'm a mom of two - a UNC Chapel Hill freshman and a sophomore at Cross Creek Early College High School. I'm a military spouse to a soldier from...Kaua'i. :) I have a dog who loves to sleep.
I've taught in Okinawa, Japan, California, and Washington state, and I've taught hula and Polynesian culture in more states than that.
I've lived in or traveled through almost every state in America, and I have to say our country is truly Amazing! (And North Carolina is actually one of my top 2 favorites. :D)
I love sharing and learning, and I look forward to working with this year's newest 5.0 Scholars! Hiki no! (We got this!)
We study. We collaborate. We problem solve. We lead.
We are 5.0 Scholars!
