I hope you and your family are enjoying your summer! We have been busy here at The Davidson Center and are looking forward to seeing you in the fall! Over the last two months, we have gone through some staff changes; saying goodbye to some and welcoming others.  After living in Davidson for the past 13 years, our college counselor, Ms. Amy Poag, has moved with her family to Dalton, Georgia. We wish Amy and her family the very best in their future successes! Ms. Tanya Chartier, who served as our reading specialist for the past nine years, has also moved on to a new endeavor. Tanya will be teaching at the new Davidson Green School which opens this fall. We wish Tanya and her family the very best!


We welcome Ms. Elizabeth Carroll to The Davidson Center! Beth is a graduate of Appalachian State University in Special Education K-12 and completed her graduate degree at the University of North Carolina Greensboro in Reading Education K-12. Beth also holds a certification in grades K-6 all subjects, and has over thirty years of experience as a regular classroom teacher, a special educator and a literacy specialist. Beth diagnoses reading difficulties and offers tutoring and remedial services in reading and elementary math and special education.  In addition, Beth serves as a special education consultant; she is qualified for active involvement in the IEP process with the school system. We are excited to have Beth on board with us!


We hope you're having a healthy, safe, and fun summer! Please visit our website and be sure to like us on Facebook to stay up to date on our services! We wish you the best and hope to see you soon!
