Meet the Team

  • Caitlyn Cottrill

    Hi Reedy Creek! I am Caitlyn Cottrill, and I joined the RCES family in 2020. I am originally from Pittsburgh, PA (Go Steelers!) and moved to NC in 2016. I relocated from Charlotte where I taught elementary special education for four years. I graduated with dual bachelor's degrees in Early Childhood Education as well as Special Education. I also have a masters degree from Ball State University in Applied Behavior Analysis with an emphasis & additional certificate in Autism. At home, I run a small business local vegan (& non-vegan) baking company. I also love to practice the piano, guitar, singing, and drawing. Feel free to follow my school instagram: @RCES_cottrill


    Teresa Lickfeld
    Hi Reedy Creek families! I relocated to Cary in 2019 from Myrtle Beach, SC where I attended Coastal Carolina University and began teaching in a CCR classroom in 2016. I have a Bachelor's degree in Learning Disabilities and a Master's degree in Intellectual Disabilities. When I am not at school, I love reading, working out, and going to the beach (which I miss so much!). My goal is to create an environment of mutual respect, confidence, and academic, social, and functional growth. I am so excited to watch my students learn and grow this year! 


    Katie McCausland

    Hello Reedy Creek Families! My name is Katie McCausland and I am excited to be joining the team as a CCR Teacher. I am originally from the Poconos, Pennsylvania. I received my degree in elementary education from Elizabethtown College in 2009.I moved to Onslow County, NC in 2012 to start my teaching career. There I worked predominantly as a special education teacher, and was honored to serve as my school’s Teacher of the Year for the 18-19 school year. When I’m not teaching, I love reading (especially Harry Potter, for the millionth time :-)), Netflix marathons, and spending time with loved ones. I look forward to getting to know and work with you this year!

I have taught special education at the elementary and middle school levels in Wake, Guilford and Forsyth counties. I have taught in self-contained, resource and inclusion classroom settings.
