Welcome to Whitaker Elementary School     
My name is Bobby Stern.  I am looking forward to my eighth year as the Curriculum Coordinator at Whitaker Elementary School and my 43rd year of teaching in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools.  I began my teaching career in Winston-Salem in 1972 teaching first and second grades at Forest Park Elementary School. I have the distinction of being the first male primary teacher in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools. During the next 25 years, I taught first, second, and third grades at South Fork, Union Cross, Hall-Woodward, and Piney Grove Elementary Schools. For the past 17 years I have been a Curriculum Coordinator.  Prior to coming to Whitaker, I was a teacher and Curriculum Coordinator at Piney Grove Elementary in Kernersville.

Two of the highlights of my career are being named the 1992 Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Teacher of the Year and receiving the 1989 Governor's Award for Excellence in Teaching Social Studies.

I am married and the father of two children. My wife works for BB&T. Both of my children currently live in Raleigh.   My daughter was a teacher in Nashville but is now a stay-at-home mom with my eight year old granddaughter and my five year old grandson. My son and his wife also have a five year old son and a daughter who will be 3 years old in September.  Both of my grandsons are beginning kindergarten this year.   He is a physical education specialist in the Wake County Schools and also serves as the state director of men's gymnastics.

It is a privilege working with all of the staff, students, and parents at Whitaker School.   Please contact me at anytime at bstern@wsfcs.k12.nc.us with questions you may have about curriculum and instruction at our school.
