I am a National Board Certified Teacher and have been teaching almost 25 years.  I still love what I do!  Nurturing gifted children to reach their full potential is extremely rewarding for me. I grew up in North Carolina and attended East Carolina University, where I earned a BFA in Dance.  I later attended UNC-Charlotte to earn my teacher certification.  I am an original Tarheel and proud of it!   I have two wonderful children, a daughter in graduate school at NCSU and a son in undergraduate at NCSU!  My interests include ballet, musical theater, baking and cooking, gardening, travel, tennis and reading.  I am very excited to be a new addition to the Davis Drive Elementary staff.

My father was in the U.S. Army, so I traveled and lived in many places when I was growing up.  I attended high school in Wiesbaden, Germany and lived in Zaire (The Congo), Africa as well as many U.S. states while in school.  I graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education & Special Education and a Master's degree in School Counseling.  I was a teacher for ten years in Texas and New Jersey and I have been a counselor since 2000.  I am married to Butch and have two sons, Jared and Zachary.  We also have two cats named Kenobi and Kenzi and a frog/goldfish pond.  I enjoy traveling, gardening, and spending time with my family.  I love my job as a counselor because I get to work with terrific kids in a great school!

Mrs. Andrea Coucoulas-Knight

Email:  acoucoulas-knight @wcpss.net

I graduated from Elizabethtown College in PA with a BA in Elementary Education & a minor in Psychology. I played soccer & swam on the collegiate level, but my favorite memory during college was serving as a Resident Assistant for three years, an early sign of how my passion was to help others.  After college, I drove from my hometown of Bridgewater, New Jersey to Raleigh, North Carolina, where I taught in Wake County for five years as a third grade teacher, at Powell G.T. Magnet Elementary.  I completed my Masters in School Counseling in 1996 from North Carolina State University, and was a counselor for 7 years at Davis Drive Elementary. I am married to Allen Knight, and have two children, Alexander (15 years old), and Ann Marie (12 years old).  I enjoy traveling with my family, running, swimming, playing tennis, and I love to collect eggs daily from my 8 chickens! I am thrilled to be back at Davis Drive Elementary as a counselor & working with Paige Everson.
