Mrs. Lynn Georgiady

1st Grade Teacher

 I am originally from the Borough of Queens, Jackson Heights, in New York City.  My family relocated to Cary, N.C. in 1970.  I attended Cardinal Gibbons High School in Raleigh.

I began my teaching journey in New York City teaching at St. Mary's School in Long Island City.  I then moved to North Carolina and taught at Immaculata School in Durham.  I began my public school service in Wake County Public Schools.  I have taught at Apex Elementary, Cary Elementary, and Green Hope Elementary.   I began teaching in Harnett County at Coats Elementary in 2007.  This will be my 15th year at Coats!  I have taught first grade for 34 of my 36 years!  My teacher assistant, Lisa Gregory and I have been teaching together for 14 years!  I absolutely love teaching first grade students beginning reading, writing, and math skills.  Those skills are the educational foundation the children will need to progress onward! I have been very fortunate to have taught first grade for most of my teaching career. 

I live in Lillington with my husband, Mike, who teaches at Campbell University and our cat Max.  I enjoy trips to the N.C. coast and mountains.  My hobbies include crocheting since I was 14 years old, scrapbooking when time permits, and working on my family tree genealogy.  My husband and I are parishioners at St. Bernadette Church in Fuquay Varina.  My husband and I grow various fruits and vegetables at our home.  I enjoy home-canning.  I love to cook anything Italian!  I am passionate about reading.  I go visiting parks in North Carolina with my husband, watch old movies and vintage TV comedy and game shows, gardening, and visit the State Farmer's Market throughout the year.  My favorite colors are blue, yellow, and white.  I enjoy hazelnut flavored coffee!  One fact that most people do not know about me is that I had a homebased craft business (fiber art) and showed at Cary Laze Days.

I continually get excited about the start of first grade each August!  New children, new ideas, new beginnings!  That is why I come back!
