Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Kerry Ann Miquel, and I have been teaching since 2013. Before coming to LMES I taught high school social studies in Durham and was a stay-at home mother to two daughters: Sophia and Amelia. While I enjoyed teaching high school, I missed having the opportunity to foster a love of learning in younger children and decided to return to an elementary environment. Kindergarten is the best place to do that, and I am honored to spend my days with our youngest scholars.
Outside of school, I spend time with my family exploring our adopted home of North Carolina. Our favorite locations include the Museum of Natural Sciences, Marbles Kids Museum, Duke Gardens, and Hanging Rock State Park. I'm always looking for day trip recommendations, so please share your favorites with me. My hobby is writing; I enjoy writing everything from picture books to novels, and I LOVE collaborating with students to come up with original class stories!
