Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My name is Maribeth Priest. I graduated from NC State (Go PACK!) with a degree in Psychology and I received my K-6 Teaching Certification from Meredith College. I have been teaching for 12 ½ years. I started my teaching career at Timber Drive Elementary as a Kindergarten teacher for 3 years. After my 3rd year, I transferred to FVES as a 2nd grade teacher. I taught at FVES for 4 years and earned my National Board Certification in 2008. In 2009 I decided to transfer to Banks Road Elementary to help open a new school and to be on the same track as my husband, Dave, who is a 7th grade Science teacher at Holly Grove Middle School.
In March of 2010, I had my first baby so I decided to stay home to begin raise our family. 18 ½ months after my son Ryan was born, my daughter, Ryley, was born. In January of 2015 I decided it was time to go back to teaching. I was hired as a Math Intervention teacher and then went back to the classroom for 2 years as a 4th grade teacher. I am now the Instructional Coach here at Olive Chapel and excited to be a part of the Clipper Family!
