Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Ami Gearing
I was born and raised in upstate NY. I went to SUNY Cortland for my undergrad in Elementary Education and Binghamton University for my Masters in Reading instruction. I taught First grade for 4 years in Endicott, NY before becoming and stay at home mom and relocating to Raleigh. I returned to teaching when my youngest started Kindergarten. I have been teaching for 11 years. When I'm not teaching, my husband and I love to spend time with my son and daughter and our 2 year old Havanese puppy named Nick. I also enjoy sitting on the back porch reading a book or traveling with our family.
Why I chose to work at MECME...
The magnet theme intrigued me and in learning more about the theme, I become more excited about the opportunities the students and teachers have to make a difference in the world. We only have one Earth and we need to be knowledgeable about our environmental impact. I am also passionate about our commitment to the communities around us and how we must work together.
