My name is Sarah Hamel and I am the School Psychologist serving Leesville Elementary School and Stough Elementary School. I grew up in the Boston area and definitely still have strong hometown roots. I attended college at Denison University in Granville, Ohio. While at Denison I double majored in Psychology and Educational Studies. I moved to North Carolina following my graduation from Denison to attend graduate school at UNC-Chapel Hill. I received my M.Ed. in School Psychology from UNC. I am also a Nationally Certified School Psychologist.

I have worked as a School Psychologist in the Wake County Public School System since the 2006-2007 school year. I love being part of the Leesville Elementary community and have worked here since the 2007-2008 school year. You can usually find me at Leesville Elementary on Mondays, Wednesdays, and some Fridays. My email address is and my voicemail is 919.694.8855. I am here to support all students, so don’t hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance.

Outside of school I cherish the time spent with my husband and two children. We love playing games together, reading, and spending time outdoors exploring the wonderful parks in this area.
