Mrs. Michele Almond

Hi, my name is Mrs. Michele Almond and I am thrilled to be your First-Grade teacher for the upcoming school year.
It’s going to be a fun year full of lots of learning and new adventures. I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for
us. I want to know ALL about you, but first I’m going to tell you a few things about myself.
I was born and raised in Wadesboro, NC and have two younger sisters. I graduated from Bowman Sr. High School.
After graduating, I attended Appalachian State University…Go Mountaineers! I majored in Business Administration
but decided later on to return to school for my certificate in education and a new career. December 2013, I finished
my Master’s degree in elementary education from Gardner-Webb University.
This will be my fourteenth year teaching. I began my career in Asheboro, NC, teaching at Guy B. Teachey Elementary
School in first grade and have loved every minute. I am very excited about being a LaFayette Eagle!
I remarried and made the move to Raleigh. My husband’s name is Dean and he is fantastic. We have actually
known each other since I was 16. We have two AMAZING sons, a BEAUTIFUL daughter, and a BEAUTIFUL
daughter-in-law. My oldest, Chuck, graduated from Appalachian State University and started his teaching career at
North East Guilford High School. He is now teaching at Asheboro High School as a Spanish teacher. He now has his graduate degree from Auburn University. Awesome guy! Our middle child, Christian, also graduated from Appalachian with a Criminal Justice degree and is an officer with the Cary PD and loves being part of the community. Christian married his high school sweetheart, Carly, who graduated from UNC. We don’t hold that against her though J. She is an awesome wedding photographer!  They are pretty awesome together! Our daughter, Lindsey, also graduated from Appalachian.
She has her master’s degree from ECU and will have her PHD from Auburn University in August.  We ARE a family that believes in education and are very blessed!! We also have a dog, Layla, and two fur grandbabies that we love dearly. I really miss not being with my children all the time, so I will need lots of hugs from you!
I am so excited about being your teacher and seeing how much you accomplish this year. This is going to be a fantastic
