Ms. Casey Byrne - Reading/Social Studies (Far Left)
This is my 5th year teaching at Baucom and my 13th year teaching ELA in Wake County. I also spent 4 years teaching school in Ireland! I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and am a huge Steeler fan, just like Mr. Stack! I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Villanova University and a Master’s degree in Elementary Education from DePaul University. I have a 14 year old daughter and a crazy lab mix named Charlie. :) Our favorite place to be is the beach! We enjoy traveling, spending time outdoors, paddle boarding, and watching sports. I am looking forward to getting to know my students and their families this year and to a fun, successful school year at Baucom!
Ms. Chrissy Minnick - Math/Science (2nd over)
I am from a small town in Maryland and am a huge fan of anything Maryland (go terps). This is my 11th year teaching in North Carolina and my 8th year teaching fifth grade at Baucom. I love spending time with my German Shepherd, Zeus, and finding all the awesome mountains to hike in the cooler seasons. I am so thankful to continue with another great year at Baucom. #MINNICKNATION
