Hello My Name Is...

Kalin Tanner


Welcome to My Classroom


Hello! My name is Kalin Tanner and I am a Georgia native. I moved to Salisbury, NC in 2011 upon graduating from Waycross College with an Associates in History where I also worked part-time for my local YMCA as an after school counselor for two years before moving to NC. After working a couple of different jobs after relocating here, I knew I missed working and interacting with kids so I went back to school where I obtained my Bachelor's degree in History at UNCC. After graduating from UNCC I jumped right into teaching beginning at Franklin Heights Christian Academy where I taught History, Bible, PE, and Biology. Due to unfortunate circumstances, the school closed down in January of 2016. It was then that I decided to make the transition to public education. In March of 2016, I subbed for fifth and sixth grade until the end of the school year which gave me the opportunity and privilege of experiencing the amazing team and family environment of the Kannapolis School System. I am excited to be a part of the Kannapolis team and look forward to an amazing year full of terrific kids and a wonderful team of parents and teachers.
