Lindsey Burr

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.

3 Year Old Class Teacher

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!

My name is Debbie Wood.  My family moved to North Carolina from Massachusetts where I worked with autistic preschoolers in an integrated classroom for 8 years.  I have my BA from Wheelock College in Early Childhood Education and Child Life.  I have been happily married to my high school sweetheart for31 years and we have 4 wonderful children ranging from 31 to 20.  I have been with Carson Creek since day one and can’t think of a better place.  I am excited for another fun year of learning and growing.

TK Teacher

Hello Carson Creek Families!  I am excited and honored to be a part of the amazing Carson Creek family.  Teaching kids is my passion in life and I am thrilled to experience this with the students at Carson Creek. I received my Bachelors Degree in elementary and special education from University of Delaware and received my Masters Degree from Hunter College in NYC.  I taught elementary school for 11 years before staying home with our boys.  My husband Jeff and I have 3 sweet and constantly on-the-go boys.  Drew is 13 and attends Brawley Middle School.  Ty is in 5th grade and Trevor is in 3rd grade, both attending Woodland Heights.  We are an outdoor family. We love being on the lake, on the golf course, on the football field (I cheer the boys on!), biking, hiking, and I enjoy trying to squeeze a run in somewhere in between all of that.  While I have loved staying home and teaching them the ways of the world, time has moved on and I am ready to once again, continue my passion of teaching children. Honestly, it makes me so happy to see the world through the eyes of little ones and watch as their minds learn and develop into the little people they grow to become.  I look forward to doing just that with the students at Carson Creek!
