Eileen Fuller is the 5th and 6th grade teacher at APCS. She has been in the Asheville area for 20 years. She has a Physical Education major and Secondary Education Minor received at Columbia Union College, and a Masters in Elementary Education received in Andrews. She had also taught 18 years before coming to APCS. She was first connected with APCS by coming to a friend's graduation at Mount Pisgah Academy. Bill Friday was the principal at APCS at the time, and her and her husband had known him for years. He introduced her to the educational superintendent, who was looking for a teacher at APCS.
She thinks that her position at APCS gives insight to the fact that teachers at APCS do not work from 8 to 3 everyday, and do not get off June, July, and August. She hopes that APCS will continue to be a loving environment where young people choose to have Jesus as their best friend and choose to dedicate their life to serve Him.
While not at APCS, she is involved with programs at Mount Pisgah Academy SDA Church, and spends time with her family. Her husband works at Park Ridge Hospital, and they have two sons. Joe, 33, is their oldest son and is over grounds at Forest Lake Academy. Their other son, Danny, 30, is a nurse practitioner in acute care at Marysville hospital. His wife, Ashley works at the Naval Hospital in Norfolk as a nurse. Eileen also likes to travel, work in her yard, and collect teddy bears and lighthouse items. She says that something that people would be surprised to learn about her is that she plays the piano and that she is adopted. She was three days old and her parents made the arrangement to adopt her before she was born.
