Meet the Teacher
Welcome to my Classroom
Deanna Buchanan


My name is Deanna Buchanan and I am excited to be teaching Kindergarten at Bell Elementary. I grew up in Mars Hill and have lived in Black Mountain for 22 years. I graduated from Mars Hill University.

I am married to a firefighter and have 3 kids. I love spending time with my family. I also love trail running, hiking and spending time in the great outdoors.

I coach Girls on the Run for girls in grades 3-5.

My teaching philosophy is a hands-on inquiry based classroom. I am thrilled to be here! It’s going to be an amazing year!
