Ms. Staples

Although I have been teaching for over twenty years, 2016-2017 was my first year teaching at Mary Phillips. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics Education from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  I began my teaching career at Hoggard High School in Wilmington, NC. After moving back home to Wendell, I resumed teaching at East Wake High for the next 16 years. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the wonderful students and staff at Mary Phillips.

Teaching is a challenge that I have always embraced. Every day is different and every student is different. I love teaching teenagers. I enjoy watching them grow from being wiggly freshmen into mature, focused young adults.   Teaching math is very important to me but teaching people is most important.  

My husband and I live in Wendell and are the proud parents of two sons, a Pirate and a Tarheel!
