Ms. Handley's Website

I am originally from Rocky Mount, NC and I like to think of myself as a local having always lived in NC. Although I did spend a school year teaching English in Slovakia. That was such a great experience. I received my Bachelors in Elementary Ed from ECU (GO PIRATES!) and my Masters in Elem Ed: Curriculum & Instruction from NC State (GO PACK!). I've been at LES for quite a while. I have taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th, was also a 3rd-5th grade Intervention teacher, and of course Kindergarten these last few years. I simply love the community here! In my free time I enjoy hanging out with friends (usually with a cup of coffee or hot tea in hand), hiking, and photography. I also love spending time with my nephews and niece.
