Ms. Gretchen Deaton

Hello! My name is Gretchen Deaton and I am excited to be a part of the 1st grade team at Oakview!

I was born in Buffalo, NY (Go Bills!) and moved to Charlotte when I was 10. Our family left NC and lived in Kentucky for a couple of years, and then I headed to college in Ohio. I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education from Wittenberg University. I landed back in North Carolina after college and have called it home ever since. I love it here! I have taught middle school drama, 5th grade, 1st grade, and Pre-K. 

I have been married for 22 years to my husband Dan, and we have three sons and a greyhound named Ally. We live in Holly Springs and love visiting the coast. I enjoy traveling, walking/swimming, photography and watching movies. 

I am looking forward to a fabulous year at Oakview!
