Mrs. James is…

Welcome back from our frozen week of adventure!! There is no homework this week, BUT please ask your child if he/she has make-up work. I had individual conferences with all my students today. Thank you! 3 days ago

TeamCFA Activity




I am Mrs. James and this is my fourth year at Lake Lure Classical Academy. I taught at Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy for 8 years and I worked in the regular public school prior to working at TJCA. I made the decision to come to LLCA because it is closer to our home. I also believe that being a part of a new charter school is a challenge and a privilege!

                                       A few facts about me:

I have taught grades 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11. I did my student teaching in 12th grade English. I have also taught English as a Second Language.

I am certified and highly qualified by the state of North Carolina to teach Language Arts grades 6-8 and English grades 9-12.

I have been happily married to Monty Sr. for 37 years!

We have a daughter, Kelly (age 36).

We also have a son Monty Jr. (age 35).

We are the proud grandparents of:

Grace (age 13), Dwight Jr. (age 12), and Bryan (age 8).

We also have 2 very spoiled dogs:

Emma (our Boston Terrier) and Tinkerbelle (our Chihuahua)

 I love my family dearly!!!!!

       I also love:

  • Attending Church
  • Being the sponsor of our Christian Club- Raptors for Christ
  • Working with kids
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Playing with my 2 dogs

I love teaching here in beautiful Lake Lure!

Thanks for all you do!,

Mrs. James
