Meet the Team

  • Tracy Dorton, Lead Secretary/Bookkeeper
    Hi everyone!  My name is Tracy Dorton and I am the Lead Secretary and Bookkeeper here at Reedy Creek Elementary.  I am originally from Muskegon, Michigan and moved to North Carolina in 2015.  I enjoy all types of music, playing games, and watching sports (Go Wolverines, Tigers, and Red Wings!). I live in Holly Springs with my husband, 2 kids, and 2 puppies.  Welcome to Reedy Creek!  It's a very special place and I'm certain you'll love it here.


    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. 

    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.
