Dr. Dana Vega

Language Arts Teacher

My name is Dr. Dana Vega and I am very excited to be your new teacher for ELA and Social Studies. I have been married for 20 years and we have two beautiful children. Our son is a Freshman in college and our daughter is a Junior in high school. We just moved to Garner after living in Fayetteville for the past 22 years. Educationally, I earned two Associate Degrees from Fayetteville Tech, a Bachelor of Science in Middle Grades Education (SS/ELA) from Fayetteville State University, a Master of Arts in Elementary Education from UNC-Pembroke, and a Doctorate of Education in Organizational Leadership with an Emphasis in K-12 Education. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher. I love learning and I am a true believer that learning is something that is lifelong. My teaching experience began in 2003, when I taught 5th grade, then moved up to teach 6th grade ELA/SS, then moved up again to teach 8th grade ELA/SS. I also taught a Journalism class at the middle school level. I ended my 15-year career with Cumberland County Schools teaching Freshman English I.
