Ms. Robin Giberson

I graduated college from the State University of NY @ Cortland College with my Bachelors in Elementary and Early Secondary English Education. I began my teaching career in 1997 in central New York teaching middle school language arts. In 2001, I married and moved to California where I taught in special education until I had my daughter. In 2007, my husband retired from the Air Force and we decided to make North Carolina our home. Since 2007, I have been teaching right here in North Carolina in grades 3-5. During my time here in North Carolina I have earned my Master’s degree from Ashford University in teaching and learning with technology. I can’t imagine doing any other job/career in the world besides teaching. I love the adventure of each new day and watching students grow and learn. I believe learning can be hard work and fun too.

In my free time, I really enjoy hiking in the mountains or sitting by the ocean with my husband and daughter. As a family, we love to travel to different places and explore the history and culture of the area.

My name is Jacqueline R. Hunter and I’m proud to be joining the Buckhorn Buccaneers team! I have worked for Wake County Public School System since 1994. My career started with Wake County as a teacher’s assistant. Due to my love of teaching students and watching them blossom, I made the decision to earn my degree. I attended Campbell University where I graduated magna cum laude receiving a BS in Elementary Education. My certification is with grades K-6. It is important to me to build relationships with my students and families so that they know that I am vested in their life and their success.

I am married and we have one grown daughter who also works with the school system. When I am not at school I love being with my family, reading, gardening, traveling and drinking Starbucks coffee.

Ahoy! My name is Melissa Graham and I am so excited to be joining Buckhorn Creek! I grew up and did my entire primary schooling in Wake County. I graduated Cum Laude, from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, in December 2015 with a B.A. in Elementary Education and a concentration in Social Studies. I look forward to joining the Buckhorn community and continuing my teaching career this year. I have taught in third and fourth grade, but look forward to teaching fourth here at Buckhorn. You may see a familiar face as my twin sister is also a teacher at Buckhorn Creek! 

In my free time, I love spending time outdoors. I enjoy going to the lake and beach. On the weekends, you can find me spending time with my family, my husband, and my furbaby my black lab Holden! I love watching sports especially football and baseball! (Go Broncos!) I look forward to meeting all of you!

Ms. Lauren Perry

Hi all! My name is Lauren Perry and I am a recent graduate from the State University of New York College at Cortland. I received my Master's degree in Childhood Education in May 2019 and spent the year student teaching in fourth and second grade classrooms in the Central New York area. I was born and raised in a small town, Oswego, NY, with two older brothers and a golden retriever; it is safe to say that I am very much looking forward to the sunny winter season here (although I will knock on wood, just incase!). In 2016, I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, GA as a graphic design major and a business management and entrepreneurship minor. After working in the advertising field for just shy of two years, I made the decision to go back to school to receive my Master's, and am so incredibly excited to be starting out my very first year as a teacher at Buckhorn Creek.

 In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going on hikes, and finding any and all excuses to bake sweets for friends and family. I love to travel, and have acquired a long bucket list of adventures that I hope to accomplish in the exciting years ahead. In the meantime, I am counting down the days until the school year begins! I look forward to spending it with you all.
