Ms. Kara Lillie

 

Hi! My name is Ms. Lillie. I am thrilled to begin a new adventure this year as McGee’s Curriculum Coach!! We are going to have a year filled with lots of learning and great times.  I cannot wait to learn all about you, but first I am going to tell you a few things about me. 

I was born in Soddy  Daisy, Tennessee. GO VOLS!! I am one of the middle children.  I have two older sisters, Gay and Lara, and a younger brother, Travis.  We moved to Garner, NC when I was 6 years old.  When I graduated high school, I attended East Carolina University… Go Pirates for three years then finished my degree in Elementary Education at Lenoir - Rhyne College in Hickory, NC.  I lived there for 10 years then moved back to Angier in 2005 to begin teaching at MCES. I taught 2nd grade for 2 years in Hickory as well as directed a Charter school for 2 years then moved to first grade and have been teaching it ever since.  This is my 23rd year teaching and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!

I have 3 children… well adult children now and a beautiful granddaughter, Sophia, that has my heart!!   My oldest Thomas is 25 years old. He is in business and loves boating and fishing.  My middle daughter is Kayla, 24 years old, and she is Sophia’s mom.  My youngest is Amanda, 21 years old, attends App State Grad School (Psychology). We miss her daily.  We also have two little adult cats.   Having older kids has made me a much better teacher.  I know exactly where students need to go and what will help them in years to come – both in school and in the real world!!

I am so excited to be McGee’s Curriculum Coach this year!! We are going to have an exciting year!!!

  • Updated COVID-19 Quarantine Guidance

    There have been significant changes to the Strong Schools NC toolkit that affects the quarantine procedures our staff and students must follow if they are exposed to a positive case of COVID-19. Any student or staff member who is currently quarantined due to an exposure of a positive COVID-19 case may return to school or work tomorrow, unless the close contact is a housemate. We are able to make this adjustment because our district requires masks for all students, staff, and guests.

  • ACCESS testing for English Language Learners

    North Carolina schools are required to administer ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 to all students identified as English Learners (ELs) in the spring of each year to determine their progress in learning English. Each student is tested in four areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. This assessment helps us monitor their English language development.

    Our district is continuing to follow the guidance and recommendations from the Johnston County Public Health Department, the CDC, and the Strong Schools NC Toolkit, and we will now adhere to a 5 day quarantine period for students or staff members who tests positive for COVID-19. This is a change from the previous 10 day quarantine time.
