Greetings! My name is Michelle Pettey and I am very excited to be teaching first grade at Pleasant Grove. I consider myself a Raleigh "native" as I have lived here since I was three weeks old! Many moons ago I obtained my teaching degree from UNC and have almost twenty years of teaching experience right here in Wake County-- most recently at Brier Creek Elementary. Although I have experience in many different grade levels, my heart is in first grade! When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my two teenage daughters and our dog; watching ACC sports; reading, and running. I am looking forward to an awesome year here at Pleasant Grove!
