Ms. Maready

Curriculum Resource Teacher, Track 1

Class Website

eMail: cmaready@wcpss.net

Hi! My name is Courtney Maready. I am a North Carolina native, mom of a 7-year-old boy, Adrian and dog mom of a 5-year-old Beagle, Parker. Some of my favorite things to do are hiking and camping and anything that involves water, especially the ocean, with my family and close friends. I reside in Apex and am so excited to be starting my journey here at Olive Chapel. I have been in education for close to a decade. I graduated from Lee University with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies with a concentration in Birth-6th grade education. I taught 2nd, 4th, and 5th grades before making a change over to CCR. I can truly say this is where my heart lies. As a classroom teacher, I always looked for innovative ways to support my students that needed a different approach to learning. I am passionate about supporting all students and helping them become not just stronger learners but also better citizens of our world.

Ms. Norman

Curriculum Resource Teacher, Track 3

eMail: jnorman@wcpss.net

My name is Jalyce Norman and I grew up right here in the peak of good living! I attended Olive Chapel as a student and I’m so excited to be back as a staff member!  After graduating from Panther Creek High School, I went to Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Exercise Science and a minor in Psychology.  I like to be out seeing sights, taking walks, enjoying nature, the occasional shopping trip, and spending time with my family and friends when possible.  Olive Chapel has always felt like a second family, and with my mom working in the front office, it couldn’t be truer. I have always known this school was one-of-a-kind and it’s amazing to have this vantage point and see how encouraging and dedicated the staff is to their students and each other.

Hi! I am a CCR teacher here at Olive Chapel. I have been teaching for over 20 years. I recently transitioned from a classroom teacher to a special education teacher. I found my passion and my purpose when I made this transition. I love what I do and being able to work with and support students. I live with my husband of 20 plus years and our 2 children, Emma, our daughter and Owen, our son and our 2 dogs, Gracie and Kona. I am excited to be part of the Olive Chapel Family.

Ms. Kriegel

ECS 1 Teacher

eMail: mkriegel@wcpss.net

My name is Ms. Maria and I am the ECS 1 teacher at Olive Chapel! Each year my goal is to make the school days filled with learning, laughter, and love! I grew up in central Illinois and graduated from Illinois State University. I settled in North Carolina in 2012 - and have considered this my home ever since. I live with my sweet dog, Becca. My immediate family lives in Chicago. I have two brothers, who are both happily married. I recently became an aunt to my sweet nephew, Noah. In my free time, I LOVE spending time outdoors, hiking, going to the beach, concerts, and sharing quality time with family and friends. I enjoy lifting weights and yoga. I started paddleboarding this year and it is so much fun! I would like to teach my dog to sit on my board so she can join me on adventures at the lake.

Ms. Thurman

ECS 2 Teacher

eMail: tthurman@wcpss.net

I am delighted to be a member of this amazing community at Olive Chapel Elementary School and to be partnering with you in your child’s education. My husband and I have lived and traveled to many places but most recently relocated to North Carolina from Phoenix, AZ. We have three grown children and while being a mom has been the best job I have ever had, being a teacher is just as rewarding! I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary and Special Education from Grand Canyon University in Arizona and I have spent my career as a certified Special Education teacher serving students in specialized programs and families in the Special Education community since 2014. I continue to learn and grow in my practice each year and I owe most of that learning and growing to the parents that entrust their children to my care and to my amazing students that never cease to inspire me.
