Degrees and Certifications:
Hello Yates Mill Elementary Families!!! My name is Nancy McCoy and I started teaching at Yates Mill Elementary in 2000 when the building opened. I taught 3rd grade for one year here and then was fortunate enough to start a family and change my role to a stay at home Mom for the next 9 years. I live in Raleigh with husband, Tim and my three children, Sydney, 19, Jack, 17 and Charlie, 15. We also have 2 dogs, Buck and Bella and a cat named Zoey. Some of my interests include walking, reading, cooking (well learning how anyway) and socializing with family and friends.
I am originally from Rochester, NY and received my degrees from Buffalo State College (BS in Elementary Education) and Nazareth College (MS in Special Education). I also received my Reading Certification from Fayetteville State University. This will be my 15th year of teaching. My teaching background includes Special Education, 5th grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade and intervention positions both in NY and in Wake County. I was so fortunate to come back to Yates Mill after raising my children. I am positive you will love our school as much as I do.
