First Grade Teacher
Selma is originally from the Asheville area and her teaching style is inspired by the nature, magic, and creative expression that characterized her own childhood. Selma has a B.A. in Elementary Education from UNC Chapel Hill and completed part of her student teaching in North Carolina and part in Hamburg, Germany. She taught kindergarten on the Dutch Caribbean island of Saba before returning to the mountains and teaching first grade at Black Mountain Primary School. In addition to her education related experiences abroad, Selma loves to travel and explore different cultures and seeks to bring a multicultural perspective into the classroom. Outside of school, she is interested in sewing, reading, hiking, and enjoying the local music scene. Selma joined Odyssey in 2016, and we love having her smile and warm energy in our classrooms!
