Ms. Gorman: I grew up in Cary and attended Wake County Public Schools for all of my K-12 education. I graduated from the North Carolina Teaching Fellows Program at Elon University with an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education. This will be my fourth year teaching. I spent two years teaching third grade at Sycamore Creek Elementary in Raleigh. I taught fourth grade at White Oak Elementary for the last two years. Previously, I had the opportunity to study abroad in Costa Rica where I spent five months working in an elementary school teaching English. I am a dual-citizen of Australia and the United States and I love to travel and visit new places. I hope to bring all of these experiences into my classroom this year. I also enjoy swimming, hiking, and baking new recipes.

Ms. Welch: Hello! My name is Amanda Welch and I am excited to be your child’s fourth grade teacher. This year will be my tenth year of teaching and first year at WOE. I grew up in Mishawaka, Indiana and attended Ball State University. After graduation, my husband and I moved to North Carolina. One thing I do not miss is lake effect snow! I love that North Carolina has beautiful beaches and mountains. Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my husband, and our two daughters. This year is going to be fantastic!
