Dotson, Tina (1st Grade)

Mrs. Dotson's First Grade Home of The Smarties

I feel very fortunate to teach at Oakley School considering I attended Oakley as a child!! I have taught first grade for 19 years, one year of second and one year of Kindergarten at Oakley Elementary! I am beginning my 21st year here and I have been in the Buncombe County system for 25 years. I have a wonderful assistant, Mrs. Courtney Satterfield and together, along with our Smarties we are a great team!
I received Teacher of the Year in 2003, my National Board Certification in 2004 and was National Risk Watch Teacher of the Year in 2006. 
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Brian and we have three wonderful kiddos; Jessica, a junior in college, Josh a junior in high school and Jenna a seventh grader. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family.
