Mrs. Teresa Pittman Kirby
Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!
Hello! My name is Teresa Kirby. I have been in preschool and elementary education for 20 years. I began my teaching career with a volunteer position in a 4 year old preschool classroom. It was here I really developed a passion for teaching, and returned to college at age 42 to pursue a degree in Elementary Education and Reading K-12 while being a Teacher's Assistant in 1st Grade. I have taught Kindergarten and/or First Grade for the past 10 years.
My roots for Glendale-Kenly Elementary and the Kenly community run deep. I am a graduate of "Kenly" Elementary and North Johnston High School. I have lived in the Kenly area my entire life. Two of my four children attended Glendale-Kenly as well.
I have 4 children; ages 35, 33, 23, and 22. My youngest is a Senior at NC State University. GO PACK!
I have 6 grandchildren ages 7 months to 11 years old (4 boys and 2 girls) who are the center of this "Mimi's" world!
I love to travel to new places every chance I get. My daughters are usually my travel partners because my husband, Curtis, doesn't share my love for traveling. He does enjoy going to the mountains every chance we get, and spending time together with the grandkids.
