Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Yvonne Harwood
I am originally from upstate New York. I graduated from St. John Fisher College in Rochester with a Bachelor’s degree in Management. I also went to San Diego State University for Elementary Education. I taught in San Diego for five years and earned a Master’s in Teaching from National University, before moving to Wake Forest with my husband Chris and our two children in 2003. Natalie will be starting high school at Enloe this fall. Our son Ethan lives in Charlotte, where he is a recent graduate of UNC Charlotte. Outside of teaching, I enjoy running, skiing, traveling, and attending my daughter’s soccer games. I have had the opportunity to teach kindergarten through third grade. I love the primary grades, but especially first grade, which I’ve been teaching since 2006. I feel very lucky to be a first grade teacher at Forest Pines!
