Hello Lead Mine families! My name is Annette Thornhill and I am the School Social Worker. You can find me in the converted office off in the media center (where they do the morning show and afternoon dismissal). I joined the Lead Mine team this year and I look forward to working with the children, families, and staff here at LMES!
This is my 29th year working as a Social Worker in Wake Co., 7 years with the WC Department of Health and 22 years with WCPSS. I spent my first 19 years at West Cary MS and Washington ES and the next two years at Dillard Dr. MS/ES. I am still at DDMS and now Lead Mine.
One of the reasons I chose education, and specifically social work, is because this field of work embodies who I am as a person. I have a heart for serving and helping others...not to mention that all of my family from my parents down to each of my 4 siblings have been/are employed in education/schools. It is an honor to love and learn with your children, and I look forward to a dynamic school year! Thank you to everyone for making me feel so welcomed!!!
