🍎 Welcome New Staff Member Anne Hailey
Anne is new to GFCC but not to Cary. She is a Cary native and grew up on Kildaire Farm Road.
Anne finished Louisburg College in 1971 and began working under John Ingram, the NC Insurance Commissioner the same year. Her tenure there was almost a decade.
After the birth of her second child in 1980, Anne told us that she began her most "Noble Profession" as a stay-at-home mom. In 1993 when Anne's youngest child entered first grade, Anne joined the staff at Cary Elementary. In 2005 she decided to take an early retirement from Wake County Public School System (WCPSS). During that same year, Anne started teaching at the Methodist Children's Center (MCC) in Cary and taught there until March 2020 when the preschool closed due to the pandemic.
A one-and-a-half year hiatus from teaching was definitely too long for Anne. She is elated to join the staff at GFCC and return to her passion of teaching young children.
Anne has four adult children and three FABULOUS grandchildren. Fortunately, they all live in Wake County!
In Anne's free time, she enjoys entertaining, cooking, yardwork, large family meals, and spending time just hanging out with her grandchildren, family and friends! And just so you know... Anne is a huge fan of HGTV!
We welcome Anne to the staff of GFCC as the lead teacher in the five-day Fours program. She will be in the Rock Stars classroom.
