Ms. East

Hi flyers! My name is Mrs. East and I have been teaching since 2006. Most of my teaching career has been spent in Third Grade, and I am SUPER EXCITED to be teaching 4th grade this year! I have been at Pleasant Grove Elementary since we opened in 2016 and truly love working with the great staff here. My lifelong dream has always been to teach and I LOVE every minute of what I do!

I am originally from Greenville, North Carolina and moved to Durham after I got married. I graduated from East Carolina University with my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and my Masters in Mathematics Education. I love to cheer on the Pirates whenever I get the chance! In my spare time I like to watch baseball and cheer on the Durham Bulls, as well as having the chance to see my brother pitch for his college team - previously the Davidson Wildcats, and now the Missouri Tigers. I love going to see shows at the DPAC whenever I get the chance. I am looking forward to another great year here at Pleasant Grove as a #fourthgradeflyer!
