TWO'S TEACHING TEAM
Lib was born Chapel Hill and with her husband, Dan (also a Durham native), has lived in Chapel Hill or Durham most of her life. She attended Western Carolina University and was fortunate to be able to stay home while her five children, Stephanie, Joe, Caroline, Brooke, and Hattie, were young. Lib volunteered many hours at her childrens' schools and was part of School Reading Partners at Mary Scroggs Elementary. These experiences planted a tiny seed of wanting to explore childhood education one day! Lib began teaching in the fall of 2010 as an assistant teacher at a local preschool and began substitute teaching at UPPS in 2013. She loves being with children and delights in their reactions as they discover and learn through play. When not teaching, Lib enjoys spending time with family, cooking, baking, gardening, reading, golf, playing handbells at Christ UMC with her daughter, Brooke, and relaxing at the beach with a good book!
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 Lib in the Turtle Two's class and to be part of the UPPS family.
