Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Lindsey Collins (1st row 1st):
Hi! My name is Lindsey Collins. I graduated from Radford University in Virginia. This is my 12th year teaching, as well as my 12th year at Baucom Elementary! I grew up in Virginia Beach, VA and moved to NC shortly after I graduated college with my now husband of 11 years. I have a 3 year old daughter, Aubree, a new baby boy, Cash and a dog named Zoey. I love to craft, play music, read, and go on adventures with my family. I am excited to be a part of the 1st grade team and can’t wait to see the kiddos sparkle this year at Baucom!
Ms. Carolyn Cirasole (1st row 2nd Over):
Ms. Sherrill Miller (1st row 3rd Over):
Hello Baucom Families! My name is Sherrill Miller and I am so excited to be joining Baucom Elementary as a first grade teacher. I have been teaching for twenty five years. I graduated from East Carolina University in 1997. After spending seven years teaching at First Flight Elementary School in Kill Devil Hills, NC, my family relocated to the Lake Norman area. I spent the last fifteen years teaching first grade in Mooresville, NC. I am happily married to Mr. Miller, who is an Assistant Principal at Holly Springs High School. We have a nineteen year old daughter, Molly, who will be a sophomore at North Carolina State University “GO PACK!” When I am not teaching my first grade friends, I love to craft, shop, read, and enjoy time at Lake Gaston. I am thrilled to be a part of the Baucom family, and I can’t wait to begin the 2023-2024 school year!

Ms. Kathleen Knox (2nd row 1st)
Ms. Stephanie Michnowicz (2nd row 2nd over):
Hi there! My name is Stephanie Michnowicz. Most of the students know me as Mrs. M. I have my bachelor’s degree from UVA-Wise, in the mountains of South Western Virginia, and I am also a proud Virginia Tech Hokie! I am going into my 10th year at Baucom Elementary. I have been an Instructional Assistant for Kindergarten and First Grade and I taught the Social Emotional Learning special for two years. This year I am hanging out with the first graders as the Instructional Assistant for Lindsey Collins (Carolyn Cirasole/Long Term Substitute) Kathleen Knox and Morgan Bell. I have two teenagers (Alex-17 and Claire-15) with my sweet husband Jim. My favorite things to do involve being outside (gardening, hiking, biking, pickleball, tennis). I am so excited to help these Baucom Aviators SOAR!
Ms. Morgan Bell (2nd row 2nd over):
Hi Baucom families, my name is Morgan Bell! I graduated from Appalachian State University in 2019 and spent the first two years of my career teaching 5th grade in Boone, NC. This is my third year at Baucom Elementary and in 1st grade and my 5th year of teaching. I love teaching 1st grade as it gives me the opportunity to share my love of learning with students early in their academic career and to watch them grow into independent learners. I grew up in Holly Springs and have loved returning to the area to be closer to family. My husband and I just celebrated our 3rd anniversary and love spending our free time hosting game nights! I also love spending time with friends and family, curled up with a good book, or trying new restaurants. I'm excited for another great school year as an Aviator!
