Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Gail Irvin
I am so excited to be a Buccaneer! This will be my 23rd year of teaching. I have taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades. I have also taught AIG math and science while coordinating a gifted and talented program. More recently, I had the opportunity to provide intervention support in both reading and math for students in kindergarten through 5th grade. Last year, I was a part-time ESL teacher and a part-time 3rd grade reading teacher.
I was born and raised in Maryland. I earned my undergraduate degree from James Madison University and my master’s degree from Florida State University. My family moved to NC in 2004. My husband and I were searching for the perfect place to raise our boys and we found it! Our older son is beginning his sophomore year at the University of South Carolina and our younger son will be a junior at Apex High School.
When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my family and friends. I especially enjoy walking my dog, Sadie, running with my husband, watching my sons play sports, and relaxing on the beach with a good book.
I truly believe everyone can learn and grow, and I get a lot of joy being an integral part of that process. I love discovering the best way to help each child reach his or her full potential. I can’t wait to meet and begin working with the wonderful students and their families at Bryan Road.
