Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Betsy Harris and this is my first year at Yates Mill Elementary. I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with a BA in English but discovered soon after that I really wanted to teach young children. I went back to Meredith College where I received Early Childhood (K-3) and Reading Certifications (K-12). This is my nineteenth year in the classroom. I spent sixteen years as an elementary teacher, mainly in the kindergarten classroom. The last three years, I have enjoyed serving as an instructional assistant.
My husband and I live in Cary and we have two children, a daughter who lives three doors down from us with her husband and our two grandsons, and a son and daughter-in-law who live in Aberdeen, N.C. During my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, and especially every minute I can with my two grandsons. I also love to read, garden, bake and serve at my church. I am excited to be part of the amazing kindergarten team here at Yates Mill.
