Welcome Back! My name is Mandy Mitchell and this will be my sixth year teaching at North Graham Elementary. NGE is a very special place to work! I am in my 18th year of being an Exceptional Children's Teacher with the Alamance Burlington School System. I previously taught 1 year at the middle school level; teaching 7th grade inclusion and resource; and 17 years at the elementary level, teaching grades K-5. I am a native of Alamance County and actually graduated from within the school system. I am a graduate of East Carolina University...Go Pirates! I also am a National Boards Certified Teacher.
A fun fact about me is that I have an identical twin sister that teaches fourth grade and my husband teaches kindergarten, both within ABSS (at the same school).
I am excited about working with many of the same students and families, but am also looking forward to meeting new students and their parents. It is all about the relationships that are built with students and parents that makes a successful school year.
In my spare time, I enjoy watching Netflix, reading, and spending time with my husband, Dee, our four year old son, Corbin, and the newest addition that was added to our family in May 2019, our son Cooper.
Thanks for all that you do and I am looking forward to an AMAZING year!
