About Me

Welcome to Social Studies!

I'm Ellen Barefoot Annas!  I was born and raised in the foothills of NC, growing up in the Granite Falls community. After graduating from South Caldwell High School I attended Catawba Valley Community College. I earned my Associate in Arts (college transfer) from CVCC. I spent the last two years of my undergraduate degree at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (Go Niners!), graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in history and secondary education. In 2018, I decided to go back to my alma mater and get my graduate degree. I am currently working on my Masters of  Education with a focus in secondary social studies. I will graduate in May 2020!

When I'm not working or doing grad school work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our families.
