    Lee-Anna Park, Receptionist
    Hello!  I arrived at Reedy Creek Elementary when it opened in the fall of 1999, as a parent.  For the past seventeen years, I have had the tremendous pleasure to serve the entire Reedy Creek Elementary Family in the front office.  In my spare time, I relish spending time and traveling with my family to visit family, spending time with dear friends, reading, live music, cooking, and eating great food.

    Nicole Snipes, Data Manager
    HI!  My Name is Nicole Snipes and I am oringally from Hampton, VA.  I currently reside in Raleigh with my two daughters, ages 18 and 16.  I love spending time with family, cooking, and vacationing at the beach.
    For ten years, I have had the opportunity to work in the Wake County Public School System providing assistance in various schools.  I am so delighted to be a part of the Reedy Creek Elementary family!
    Catherine Yanello, Principal 
    Hi, I’m Catherine Yanello and I’m honored to be principal of Reedy Creek Elementary.  This is my eighth year as the leader of our school.  However, this is my fourteenth year as an administrator for Wake County Public Schools.  I started out teaching in Wake County over twenty-five years ago and have taught Special Education and was also a Regular Education Classroom Teacher.  I really enjoy building connections with students and staff, seeing students and staff grow, and being a part of our close-knit Reedy Creek school family.

    I’m originally from northern New York state, right on the Canadian border where the winters are long and very cold.  Therefore, I really enjoy the weather in North Carolina and being able to go to the beach.   I have a daughter who graduated from NCSU and is currently in graduate school for Physical Therapy at ECU.  I am a dog lover and enjoy walking my two dogs, watching pro football games, spending time with family and friends, reading, and traveling.
