About Ms. Pendergraft

About: I have lived in North Carolina my entire life.  I was born and raised in Hendersonville, NC.  I went to East Carolina University where I received my BS and Masters degrees in Elementary Education. This past July my husband, Craig and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary.  We have 3 children, Megan, Christopher, and Madison who all attended Hilburn.  This is my 18th year working at Hilburn and my 30th year in education.  I love coming to work because of the fantastic students and staff that I get to work with daily.  I am excited for my new position this year as the K-8 Instructional Facilitator.
