About LaManda

I am an 17 year veteran educator. Of those 17 years I have spent all my time in elementary schools. I have taught Pre-K, some second grade, but mostly third grade. Currently I am an elementary principal. My expertise is in, but not limited to, literacy. I am a certified reading specialist. As an principal, a previous literacy leader and reading coach I have great knowledge of the K-5 curriculum.

My work experience in the classroom is matched with my educational background. I have a BA in Communications, a BA in Elementary Education, and a Master of Education in Education Administration and Supervision. I hold a license from the state of North Carolina in Elementary Education K-6 and a license in Education Administration K-12.

I have numerous successful experiences working with students not on grade level. My passion and commitment to education is evident in my caring approach to every student. As a mother of a very active 16 year old, I bring the same care and love I have for my own to child to any student that I teach. I truly believe I can "shape the lives of every child, one child at a time."
