Mrs. Vinson's Third Grade

I am excited about this new journey at Mountain Island Charter School! My hope is that this website gives you all the information you need about our classroom. Check back often to check for school and class news.
Chantal Vinson
I was born in Montreal, Canada and was raised in a French Canadian environment. I started learning English as a second 
language in 4th grade and learned very fast. After college I taught grades 5 and 6 for five years in the Quebec school system.
I moved to Charlotte as part of the Visiting International Faculty program (VIF) in 2004 to teach at Winding Springs 
Elementary where I taught 2nd and 5th grades for a total of six years. During my stay, I met my husband Daniel and we 
married in the winter of 2007. We do not have any children yet but we love to take care of our two cats, Kitty and Jazzie. 
This school year will be my twelfth year as a teacher. Time flies by! I am excited for this new chapter of my life and I am
proud to join Mountain Island Charter School. I wish you all a great 2010-2011 school year!
