Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Kaila Umstead

I was born and raised in Greensboro, NC. I have lived in Raleigh for the past 2 years and love it here. I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2020 and double majored in Psychology and Women & Gender Studies. I am in my final semester of a graduate-level certificate program in special education. This is my first year teaching!
I have one younger brother in high school and love to watch him play basketball! My hobbies include hiking, running, and cooking.


What excites me about Environmental Connections...

Our magnet theme encourages students to explore the world around them. This sense of exploration was pivotal to my childhood and I'm so glad our students are getting to experience that in a supported environment!
