Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Mary Ellen Morin
Hi! Welcome to First Grade! My name is Mary Ellen Morin, and I am thrilled to be a part of your child's educational experience. Here is a little bit about me:
I grew up in Connecticut, attended college in New Hampshire, and started my professional career back in my home state of Connecticut. My family moved to North Carolina from Connecticut 8 years ago, and we have quickly fallen in love with the southern way of life. We have been a part of the Ballentine family since my son started Kindergarten in 2013. I joined the Ballentine teaching staff in the Spring of 2016, and I love teaching first grade! My prior teaching experience includes Sixth Grade, Third Grade, and Kindergarten.
When I am not in school I enjoy spending time with my husband and three children, whom also attend Ballentine. We also have a lazy little dog named Bailey. When I have time I enjoy sewing, reading, watching movies, and going on vacation.
