Amy Artrip, Intervention & Special Education Teacher

This is my 9th year as a York Bulldog and a member of the Special Programs Team!  I am a proud graduate of Marshall University in Huntington, WV where I earned a BA and MA in Counseling (Rehabilitation/ Mental Health) in the early 90s. Go Herd!  My first career included counseling with college students with disabilities, children in therapeutic foster care and with individuals in a community based mental health program.  After working a few years as an Instructional Assistant in Special Education, I completed coursework and certification in Mild to Moderate Disabilities through NC Wesleyan and began teaching in WCPSS in 2012.  I love teaching Reading and Social Emotional Learning with young students because they want to learn and openly show how proud they are when they are successful. They are the hardest working students and it’s a privilege to teach them!

Mary Kate Smith, Special Education Teacher

I am a married mother of two originally from Davidson, NC.  We are moving back home to Raleigh after 8 wonderful years in Georgia! My husband, William, is a NCSU alumni working in textile sales. My son, Will, (16) is golf obsessed and my daughter, Molly, (15) loves baking and the arts.  We enjoy traveling as a family and attending sporting events.  I attended Appalachian State University and graduated with a business degree.  Years later, I realized Special Education was my calling, so I went back to school for my certification and masters. I’ve worked in this field for 10 years now and couldn’t be happier.  I’m thrilled to continue my passion as a CCR teacher at York Elementary!
