Degrees and Certifications:
Hi Leopards! My name is Maureen Bard, and I am excited to continue my journey at Lead Mine Elementary. This will be my ninth year teaching, eighth in third grade, and third at LME! I am originally from Pittsburgh, PA where we put french fries on our salads and cheer on the Steelers! I graduated from Robert Morris University with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.
I relocated to NC in 2014 and haven’t looked back since! My husband and I live in Raleigh with our sweet little pup, Rodney Aquarius Bard, age 4. We adopted him a few years ago and he has stolen our hearts in every way. Some of my favorite things include crafting, baking cookies, curling up with a good book, spending time at the beach, watching HGTV, listening to country music + Backstreet Boys (they deserve their own category), exploring new trails, and eating Lunchables (guilty pleasure).
I am looking forward to a wonderful year guiding these children to be the very best versions of themselves. We will learn and grow with one another and celebrate our many successes along the way. Can’t wait for all the new memories to be made!
