Mary was born in Chapel Hill, grew up in Raleigh and ended up back in Chapel Hill with her husband Mark and daughters Sarah 10 and Abigail 8. Both girls started at UPPS as Turtle Two's and stayed through the Five's class loving every minute of it!  Mary and her family are active church members at UPC where she also enjoys teaching Sunday School. She likes spending time with her family, hiking, biking, collecting sea shells, fly fishing, trying new recipes and volunteering. Mary is very excited to work with Virginia in the Turtle Two's class and to be part of the UPPS family.

Virginia is excited for a fun and exciting year with the Turtle Two’s.  She has worked at UPPS for the past five years in various classrooms.  Virginia graduated with a BS in Human Development from Vanderbilt University and a Law Degree from Wake Forest.  When not at UPPS, Virginia enjoys running, traveling and spending time with her husband, Michael, and two daughters, Grady and Mason.
