Ms. Brooke Tolar
Hi! My name is Brooke Tolar. I grew up in Wayne County, not too far from here. I graduated from East Carolina University with a BS in Elementary Education (K-6) concentrating in Reading (K-12). I completed my student teaching in kindergarten at Northeast Elementary School and absolutely fell in love with all things kinder! After graduation, I worked as the Title I K-2 Reading Interventionist at the same school I completed my internship at, as I waited for a kindergarten position to open up. The opportunity to work with students and teachers in multiple grade spans so early on in my career was an awesome experience that I believe even better prepared me to be the classroom teacher that I am now. After serving as an interventionist for 2 years, my clinical teacher retired & the classroom I completed my internship in became mine!
That same year, I was introduced to my (now) fiance. He is a history teacher and coach at West Craven High School. I made the official move from Wayne County to Craven County to be with him - which is how I ended up here at Trent Park!
This is my 2nd year teaching kindergarten at Trent Park and I am excited for another wonderful year full of learning & fun!
