Trisha Caviness

Trisha considers herself to be a true “mountains to the sea girl” after her influences from all regions of North Carolina. She has been fortunate to teach in many diverse areas over the last eleven years, including Ocracoke School on the Outer Banks. Her heart has always belonged in Boone since she attended college at Appalachian State and received her Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education and MA Curriculum and Instruction Specialist. She was also a NC Teaching Fellow. She is thrilled to be working with future educators and has enjoyed reconnecting with Appalachian State Teaching Fellows Alumni this past year.

Trisha has a beautiful 4-year old daughter who keeps her busy with her energetic and outgoing personality. She has recently welcomed another little girl to her family. Trisha enjoys playing tennis and clogging.
