Hi, I'm Lesley Christie.  I joined the Combs staff in 2006 and have had the opportunity to work with students in several grade levels.  I am from Illinois and New York, but now live in Apex with my husband, 2 sons who are in college, and a daughter that will be a high school senior this year.  When I have time to relax, I enjoy gardening, reading and crafting.  My favorite part about teaching is watching children grow and learn!

My name is Anna Jones and I am thrilled to be teaching at AB Combs! I received both my undergraduate degree in psychology and my Masters of Arts in Teaching degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Go Tarheels! I recently moved to Cary and have loved exploring the triangle area. I strive to create a positive classroom environment that supports the learning and growth of every individual, working alongside them to help them reach their full potential. Every child is uniquely capable, and every child matters. Outside of work, I enjoy taking walks, hiking, exercising, baking, and spending time with friends. I am excited for this school year!

My name is Tiffany Norman and I am a military child born in Honolulu, Hawaii and raised in Washington D.C. I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill (GO Tarheels!) in 2007 and came straight to Combs Elementary. Since then I’ve enjoyed teaching in K-2 and love what the magnet program has to offer. I went back to Carolina and received my Masters in Education in 2013. My husband loves basketball and we have two munchkins, Xavier and his little sister Rae. I have a younger sister with tons of creativity, a younger brother attending UNCG for music, and two loving parents not to far from here. I love teaching and working with young children. Their sense of humor and love of learning inspire and motivate me every day!

My name is Hayley Sullivan and I am so excited for another year here at Combs! I was the first of my family to be born in America after my mother immigrated here from England. I was raised in Western North Carolina and attended North Carolina State University as a first generation college student. I received my Bachelors of Science Degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics in May of 2020. After completing my student teaching experience at Combs in 2019, I knew it was the place I wanted to call home- I am very proud to be a gator! In my free time, I enjoy shopping, yoga, and walking my dog Bibbs!
