Mrs. Deanna Darcy

Hello Carpenter Families,  

My name is Deanna Darcy, and I am the Instructional Facilitator and Literacy Coach here at Carpenter. This will be my 8th year working at Carpenter Elementary and my 12th year in education.  I graduated from Dowling College in NY, with a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. I added Elementary Education and Teaching Reading K-12 to my license after falling in love with literacy education and support in the early and upper elementary grades. I currently live in Raleigh with my husband, our 1-year-old son, and our two dogs. My work at Carpenter includes supporting administrators, teachers, students, and parents.  My role at Carpenter provides me with a unique opportunity to work alongside teachers and students as we cultivate learning together.    


If you have any questions regarding ways to help your students at home with reading, please feel free to send me an e-mail at
