Hello, Dolphins!  I was born and raised in south Florida.  North Carolina has been my home since 1998.  I love our beautiful scenery and weather.  My husband and I are the proud parents of two daughters.  Our oldest is a WCPSS teacher and our youngest is a high school senior.  Our cat, Gracie, rounds out the family.  I joined the DDE staff in 2004.  I love teaching because I get to help young children develop their passion for learning.  In my free time, I love to spend time with my family, read, travel, cook, and crochet.

I have called Davis Drive "home" now for 12 years.  It was my first teaching experience and hopefully my last!  I am married to a fourth grade teacher here at DDE and we have two wonderful fur babies, Kevin and Lucy.  Working with children is unbelievably rewarding and I could not imagine another career.  Until high school language arts, I struggled in school and had no love of learning.  That year, Mrs. Gallagher inspired me every day with her love of teaching and learning.  I became a teacher in hopes that I can spark a love of learning early in life!  When I am not at school, I enjoy working in my garden, running, reading, travelling, decorating, and crafting. I am looking forward to an amazing year!

My name is Andrea Squiers and I have been teaching for 27 years. I am originally from Portland, Maine (it’s cold there) and so 14 years ago, our family moved to North Carolina (much warmer!). I have a wonderful husband, Kurt, who directs TV commercials, and two beautiful children, Normandy (25), who is a graduate of UNCW and Gage (20), is a Junior at UNCW. We have a Boxer-Beagle named Precious, who is one crazy mutt, but we love her anyway. 

I love spending time with my family, traveling, gardening, walking & hiking, reading, movies, eating, playing sports, and watching our beloved Boston Red Sox.

It's exciting to be working in a Davis Drive Elementary first grade classroom this year!  I have been working at DDE for 12 years but have been part of the DDE family for 22 years.  We moved from Connecticut to Cary in 1995 when my two oldest girls started 2nd Grade and Kindergarten the year DDE opened.  I started working at DDE when my youngest daughter was in 1st Grade and now she is in College!  My alma mater is Pace University in New York where I met my husband and received a BS in MIS and worked at IBM for 15 years.  I am a wife, mom, a lifelong learner, enjoy technology, science, art, cats and the outdoors.  It's wonderful to be part of the Davis Drive Dolphin Pod!  #SwimFwd
