Hi... I am Mary Whitlock and I am enjoying my twenty-sixth year as an educator.  I worked my first two years in Asheville City Schools as a seventh grade Language Arts and Social Studies teacher.  In 1998, I moved to North Buncombe Middle School where I worked for seven years as a Social Studies and Science teacher.  I traveled across the county to teach at TC Roberson for ten years, everything from Advanced Placement US History to World History.   When the opportunity presented itself to come home to NBHS, I took it.  This semester I am enjoying teaching  American History II.
