Upcoming Events



    We are going to have a RECORD BREAKING year!



Ms. Rachel Karriker

This is my third year at Morgan Elementary and I love it! I was inspired to become a teacher after having many positive interactions with my teachers in school. The way these teachers inspired, influenced, and encouraged me pushed me to do my very best and answer my calling to become a teacher. I graduated from Western Carolina University in 2009 with a degree in Elementary Education and a concentration in English.


With YOUR help, we can make this school year a wonderful year for your child.
