Briana Lingle

Hi! My name is Briana Lingle and this is my second year teaching at Kingswood Montessori STEM Magnet School. You may have seen me around school last year as part of the Kindergarten team! I can’t wait to meet all of my 1st grade students and their great families!

I graduated from the University of North Carolina-Wilmington with a degree in Exercise Science and quickly realized that that wasn’t my real passion, but that teaching was. I then went to North Carolina State University to receive my masters degree in teaching! I love working with children and challenging them to become the best they can be, both academically and emotionally. This year is going to be a great year!
