Michelle Gensler, Magnet Coordinator/Instructional Facilitator

I have worked at Kingswood for 15 years. I am originally from Ohio, but I also lived in Las Vegas for 5 years before moving to Cary in 1995. My education degree is from THE Ohio State University- Go Bucks! I enjoy watching sports, shopping, and going to the beach. My very first teaching experience was at a public Montessori school in Columbus, Ohio.

Kim Zeugner, AIG/Intervention

This is my 15th year at Kingswood where I have been math coach, 3rd and 5th grade teacher, STEM teacher, AIG teacher, and intervention teacher. I grew up in North Carolina and attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, majoring in Political Science and earning a Master of Arts in Teaching. I love hiking, exercising, reading, cooking, carpentry, and spending time with family. (And don't even get me started about Tar Heel basketball!) I have 3 children, and adopted a sweet, sweet dog in 2021. The most exciting thing I have ever done was jumping out of an airplane. I feel fortunate to get to work with amazing young people who always surprise me and teach me every day, so they're pretty exciting too.

Annamarie Tucci, Intervention

I am so excited to begin my third year as an Intervention Teacher here at Kingswood Elementary! A little about me, I grew up in Apex before moving to Greensboro for college in 2005. I graduated from UNC-Greensboro and taught in Guilford County for four years prior to moving back to my hometown of Apex. Most of my family lives up north and I enjoy traveling to visit them as often as I can. I especially love spending time with my two little nieces, Hadley and Lochlan. I also enjoy art, music, movies, playing sports, and traveling. I played softball, basketball and swam competitively growing up. I even played women's tackle football for five years as a young adult. Now, I just play the much slower-paced game of slow pitch softball for the Town of Cary. I am looking forward to the 2023-2024 school year. Together we will make it a wonderful school year!

“Ni Hao” Kingswood Families! (“Ni Hao” is “Hello!” in Mandarin Chinese.) My name is Ms. Liu and I am looking forward to an exciting year with the students! This will be my 21st year teaching at Kingswood (19 years as music teacher and 2 years as ESL teacher). I am originally from Taiwan and was an ESL student when I came to the U.S. in 5th grade. I graduated from UNC-Greensboro (piano performance), University of Illinois (music education), and received ESL certification from NCSU.
