About the teachers
Ms. Gendron is beginning her 10th year teaching. She taught 4th grade her first 5 years and now has taught third grade the last 5 years. She really enjoys the aspects of third grade: especially Science and Social Studies. She has been at PES for the past 7 years and taught at Barwell Road before that.
Ms. Gendron graduated from the University of Richmond in 2007 with a Bachelor's of Arts in Religion, Education with a valid teaching license, as well as French and Music minors.
Mrs. McKinney is beginning her 17th year teaching in NC. She has taught kindergarten, second grade, fourth grade but loves third grade the best! She has experience in Fayetteville, Winston-Salem, Greenville and several years here in Wake County at Lockhart. Her passions include reading, traveling, food and teaching third grade (of course!)
She has a husband, two girls and a dog named Prince!
Mrs. Deans is so excited to be at Partnership! This is her third year of teaching and first year in third grade. She graduated from NC State in 2013 after student teaching at Partnership. She then completed her Ed.M. in Language and Literacy at Harvard Graduate School of Education. After graduating, Mrs. Deans moved to California where she taught for two years. Now she is back home living with her husband in Chapel Hill.
Outside of school, Mrs. Deans loves trying new foods and spending time outdoors hiking and camping.
