Ms. Troutman


Welcome to our 4th grade class! I have been teaching since 2004. I grew up in Greensboro, and became a teacher after working in corporate communications and community journalism for about five years. I love teaching and look forward to a wonderful year with your child in my class!

I also love spending time with my family, reading, painting, and taking long walks with my two dogs, Emmet and Gracie, both of which are rescues.

If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me through Class Dojo, email, or phone at (704) 932-8121.
