I received my undergraduate degree in Deaf Education from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 1982 and my Master's degree in Instructional Technology from North Carolina State University in 2002. My first job after graduation was teaching hearing impaired students in Virginia.  After staying home with my three children, I re-entered teaching at Combs Elementary in 1995 as an interpreter, then teacher of the hearing impaired, & finally as an Instructional Technology Facilitator. I have been a part of the Walnut Creek family since the school opened in 2011.

In my spare time, I enjoy crafts, reading, and spending time with my family.

Hi!  My name is Maribeth Priest.  I graduated from NC State (Go PACK!) with a degree in Psychology and I received my K-6 Teaching Certification from Meredith College. I have been teaching for 12 ½ years. I started my teaching career at Timber Drive Elementary as a Kindergarten teacher for 3 years. After my 3rd year, I transferred to FVES as a 2nd grade teacher. I taught at FVES for 4 years and earned my National Board Certification in 2008. In 2009 I decided to transfer to Banks Road Elementary to help open a new school and to be on the same track as my husband, Dave, who is a 7th grade Science teacher at Holly Grove Middle School.

In March of 2010, I had my first baby so I decided to stay home to begin raise our family. 18 ½ months after my son Ryan was born, my daughter, Ryley, was born. In January of 2015 I decided it was time to go back to teaching. I was hired as a Math Intervention teacher and then went back to the classroom for 2 years as a 4th grade teacher. Over last summer I was offered a position to become an Instructional Coach here at Walnut Creek! I am so proud to be a Wildcat. I truly love my job, the students, and the staff!

When I am not at school you will find me with my family; Dave, Ryan (8), and Ryley (6). I love visiting my parents where we go boating, jet skiing, swimming, and water skiing. I have a strong love for sports and this becomes a quick topic of conversation with my students. I love NC State football and basketball.  I actually played on the Club Softball team at State before the varsity team was formed! I am so happy to be here at Walnut Creek Elementary!
