        A little bit about myself. My name is Wendy Gregory. Welcome to our Wonderful 1st Grade Classroom, Ms. Wendy's Sensatiional Stars! 
      We are going to have an exciting year of rigorous learning and success. Every child deserves a champion and this year we will work together to help your child reach his/ her fullest potential. 
        I have been an educator for 21 years and this is my 22nd year. I taught 13 years in Harnett County and this is my 9th year in Duplin County.  I graduated from Campbell University in 2001 with a Bachelors Degree in Family Studies with Double Concentrations in Child Development and Family. I am K-6 certified  in Elementary Education and I love teaching young children.  I have an Associates of Arts Degree from Heritage Bible College with a degree in Christian Education. I have two beautiful children Lindsay who is a  2022 graduate at North Duplin Jr. / Sr.  and Lucas 14 a rising 9th grader at North Duplin Jr Sr. . I am originally from Duplin County and a graduate of Duplin County Schools and I am excited to be teaching in my home county. I have taught Preschool, Kindergarten, First, and Second Grades and I feel honored and blessed to be the difference that my students need. Some things to know about me are  my favorite foods are Steak and Mexican. My favorite colors are Yellow and Lime green. I enjoy spending time with my two amazing kids and all of  my family and friends. I love going to the beach and going to the gym. Outdoor activities are my favorite!  
       Teaching is my passion. I believe that all students can learn at their own pace. My goal is to be the best advocate for students and to help them achieve success. Every child is a true gift and should be treasured for who they are and what he or she has to offer and will become. My goal is to help your child have the best year ever that will lead to  their future success in life.  I believe, that hands- on learning is the best and that learning should allow them to be creative and to show their learning styles.  Read with your child every night and anything is possible for them. I believe in children and I will do my best to help them believe in themselves. Dr. Seuss said it best, You have brains in your head, you have feet in your shoes, you can steer yourself in any direction you choose! Together, we will work as a team to watch them soar! Feel free to email me at wgregory@duplinschools.net if you would like to get in contact with me. 
     My favorite way to communicate is via our class dojo. My favorite websites are Freckle.com and Get epic.com. I look forward to a successful year watching my  Sensational Stars shine and grow in every
    area as we teach the whole child!
