Mrs. Jeniffer Bierman

I am excited for this new school year at HCJ as a 3rd grade classroom teacher.  I have been a teacher for more than 10 years now and I have taught ESOL, Spanish, Fourth and Fifth grade in Florida and even subbed in California.

My husband Andrew and I have two wonderful sons, Anthony and Jacob.  Along with being an educator and a mom, I enjoy spending time with family & friends, hiking, cooking and swimming.

I can't wait to embark on new adventures with my students this year at HCJ!

Mrs. Monica Thomas

My name is Monica Thomas. I am from Shelby, NC. I am so excited and blessed to be working at HCJ, truly the best elementary school out there! I went to college at Western Carolina University in NC where I got my bachelors in Elementary Education. 

I have a daughter who brings my life so much joy. She is the best thing that has happened to me!

My favorite place is our family lake house. There is nothing better than relaxing by the lake, taking boat rides, swimming and laughing with family. I have a huge family and we do LOTS of things together- we call each other McMurry Nation. It is great to know you always have someone in your corner and that is what family means to me.

My name is Aubrey Watson. I started teaching in 2016. I taught second grade at Jefferson Elementary for four years, but I am so excited to be  at HCJ. My husband, Karl, and I live with our daughter, Palmer,  in Fort Mill, where I am originally from. I took a year off from teaching to stay home with my baby girl, but I am loving being back in the classroom. I love building relationships with my kids and their families. In my free time, I enjoy working out, spending time with my family (usually outside), going to church, and working out.
