Caitlin Branch

Hello! My name is Caitlin Branch and I am a North Carolina native. I grew up close to the North Carolina beaches in a small town called Whiteville. Throughout childhood, my answer to “What do you want to be when you grow up?” was often “a teacher and a momma,” although sometimes I would switch things up and the answer would be veterinarian, artist or interior designer. When graduating high school in 2013, the dream of becoming a teacher remained the same, and I left my tiny town to head to East Carolina University to pursue a degree in Elementary Education. I graduated in 2017 from ECU, and moved to Raleigh to begin my teaching career at Triangle Math and Science Academy, where I taught for 6 years. I have previously taught kindergarten and first grade and have a passion for cultivating a love of reading in students starting at this young age! I also have a deep interest in child development- carried out by constantly observing children and researching that area of interest. When I am not at AB Combs, you can find me teaching ballet to young children, walking and exploring with my husband, Brian (and our sweet dog Leo), grabbing dinner at local restaurants (Hanks in downtown Cary being a favorite!), creating art/painting and rearranging the rooms in my house (pretending to be that interior designer I also dreamt of becoming), relaxing at the beach with friends and family, or hanging with our four nieces who I love dearly–I love being “Aunt Caitlin!” I am excited to meet YOU, and I am looking forward to a wonderful school year together at AB Combs!
