4 Year Old Class Teacher, Director & Owner
I was born to be a teacher! I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t dreaming of teaching, actually teaching or planning how to get back to a classroom. I grew up in North Carolina and graduated from UNC Chapel Hill with degrees in Elementary Education and Psychology. I taught in the public schools before my children were born and while I was staying home to care for them, I began teaching Sunday School for the kindergarteners. When my younger son, Ellis, turned four, I taught preschool at Playwise Preschool Academy in Huntersville and absolutely loved it! My philosophy on children and education has evolved since my first year in the classroom and I can’t wait to share my passion and love for children with the families in our community.

Michelle has over 14 years of preschool experience as a lead teacher. I am originally from California and moved to North Carolina in 2006. My education was back west in Colorado where I earned a business degree. Little did I know that my passion would be in education and working with the younger children to make their first experience with school a great one! I am married 25 years and hope for 25+ more with my husband Steve. We have three children -Sierra is 25 with a BS in Kinesiology and a BS Nursing, Skyler is 23 and is a Hair Stylist in Wilmington NC, and Gavin is 18 and is a freshman at the University of North Carolina Wilmington.
As for me, when I’m not at horse shows or selling houses (yes, I’m a realtor too!), I enjoy the outdoors – whether it’s kayaking, paddle boarding, mountain bike riding or fishing off my dock, I love being outside! My other passion is yoga, when I can squeeze it in! I look forward to the new experiences Carson Creek will bring to your little ones and I can’t wait to meet them!
