I hold a BS in Dance Education from East Carolina University. I have been teaching 23 years with 18 being at Washington. I am married with 2 children and I am a Disney Fanatic.
Hi! My name is Liz Reynolds and I love teaching Spanish (and facilitating language learning in German, French, Chinese and other more!) at Washington GT Magnet! This is my fifth year teaching and I have had the joy of teaching special education and first grade in the past. I obtained my bachelor and masters degrees at SUNY Geneseo and SUNY Buffalo in western New York (don't miss that snow!). I am certified in the areas of Spanish, ESL, Special Education, and Elementary Education. My loves and passions include: my husband, working with children, animals (I have two furbabies), music, languages, and crafting...and Diet Coke!
This is my second year as Washington’s Physical Education teacher. My journey at Washington began in the winter of 2011, as a Special Programs Teacher Assistant. I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin and graduated from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh with a Bachelor’s in Physical Education and a double minor- Health Education and Adapted Physical Education. In addition to teaching, I coach the Washington Running Club and Washington Track Team. I nurture the importance of a positive elementary experience that provides as fun, active and knowledgeable learning experience for your child.
North Carolina has been my home for just over 5 years. My kids have paws :) I have a cat named Superman and a dog named Barrett. I am also an auntie to two amazing young ladies who inspire me with their creativity and "spunkiness". I enjoy watching sports, especially the Green Bay Packers.
This is my 32nd year, my 30th in public school, and I have taught in 7 schools to date. I have also taught in Junior College for one semester as adjunct faculty. Before I started teaching at 28, I played music full time on the road and in the studio for recording dates and part/full time after that. I have been in Wake county since 2000. B.S. Music, 1980, BME Music, Master of Music Education 1990 Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ.
