Ms. Drena Gibbs, Intervention

Hello Green Families! I am Drena Gibbs, and this will be my second year at Green. This year marks my 27th year in education. Throughout my career, I have been an intervention teacher, classroom teacher, parent advocate and testing coordinator. I am so excited to be back in the role as Interventionist for the upcoming school year. As an educator, I have been afforded the opportunity to work with the most inspiring students and teachers. I know this school year will be just as rewarding. In my spare time, I love having long conversations with my 24-year-old son. That age group is quite interesting!

Mrs. Tricia Seymour, Magnet Coordinator and Testing Coordinator

Hi!  My name is Tricia Seymour and I am so excited about be beginning my 14th year at Green.  I love being a part of the Green family and sharing this educational adventure with our students, my friends and colleagues.  I graduated from Meredith College and began to work with various professional associations.  After a few years, I became a stay-at-home mom with my boys, Schafer (24) and Mitchell (21).  I knew I had always wanted to be a teacher, so I began working as an Instructional Assistant at their elementary school.  I continued my education to become a teacher and, after 16 years in education, I know I made the right decision.  I live in Raleigh with my husband, Charlie.  I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, attending sporting events (Go Wolfpack), and reading thriller novels.
