Meet the Second Grade Team!
2nd Grade Instructional Assistants
Hello everyone! I'm Mrs. Hipp and I'm super excited to be back at Kingswood this year. I started at Kingswood in the spring of last year. I graduated from NC State University (Go Pack!) in 2011 and worked with a campus ministry in NYC and at NC State and Meredith College until 2017. Then I became a nanny and started a home bakery! I decided to jump back into the world of teaching and am so glad I did. I love learning about other cultures, cooking, baking, and spending time with Mr. Hipp and our baby boy Bryce. I know this year will be an adjustment and will look different but I look forward to learning and growing together this year!
Hi there, I'm Ms. Humphrey! This will be my third year teaching second grade at Kingswood Elementary, and I cannot wait! A little about me, I grew up right down the road in Hillsborough, NC and attended The University of North Carolina at Wilmington and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education with a concentration in Early Childhood Education. I have one big fur baby, Watson, who is a major topic of conversation in my classroom. Outside of teaching I love to travel, bake, and spend time with my family and friends!
Hello! My name is Mrs. Lumley. I got married this summer and I changed my name, but you might remember me as Ms. West! This is my second year teaching at Kingswood. Last year, I taught first grade and this year I will be moving up to second grade just like you! I hope you are just as excited as I am!
This is my third year at Kingswood Elementary School. I have twenty years experience. I am a Nationally Board Certified teacher. I have a Masters in Early Elementary Education. I love to fish and spend time with my granddaughter.
Hello Friends! My name is Olivia Reedy and this is my second year at Kingswood Elementary School. I moved down to 2nd grade from 5th grade and I am so happy to be on this team! I am originally from Pennsylvania, but lived in Charlotte, NC for most of my life. I attended NC State University here in Raleigh where I majored in Elementary Education. In addition to my parents, I have 3 brothers--two older and one younger. My family is so important to me and I love spending time at the beach, playing games, or joking around with them. In my free time, I love to watch netflix, play games with my friends, read, or be outside! I am so happy to be your teacher this year. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions. I'm looking forward to a great year!
Hi, I am Jill Harris, an Instructional Assistant. I have worked at Kingswood since Nov. 2001. I am married and have two boys, ages 28 and 24 who both went to Kingswood Elem. I am originally from the Chicago area and moved to NC in 1993. I enjoy boating and have a boat that we use on the intercoastal waterway all the time. I also love watching baseball (Go Cubs), football (Da Bears) and hockey (Go Canes).
