Meet the Teacher

Welcome to my Classroom

Mrs. Gretchen Kanupp

My name is Gretchen Kanupp. I am so thrilled to be teaching third grade this year. I hope you are ready to learn a lot of new and exciting things!!! I was born in Hendersonville North Carolina. I graduated from West Henderson High School in 1980. I met my husband in 1981 and we were married in 1985. We have two awesome boys. Our oldest is 26 and lives in Richmond, VA. He is studying to become a pharmacist. Our youngest is 16 and is a junior in high school.
I worked as an assistant for a year and I decided I wanted to be a teacher . I went to Mars Hill College at night for five long hard years. I began working at Oakley in 1994 and have loved every minute. I have been so blessed to be a teacher at Oakley. This community is amazing. I have taught first, second and third grades. My favorite is third! I am looking forward to a great year!!! If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to call the school at 274-7515 or email me at
