Grisel Cuadrado

My name is Grisel Cuadrado and I am delighted to serve as the Instructional Leader at Coats Elementary. I had 13 years of experience as a Spanish teacher at Overhills Middle School prior to joining the administrative team at Coats Elementary as an Assistant Principal for four years. I live in Fayetteville with my husband, Elvin,  and have three grown children who have all graduated from North Carolina's public education institutions. My vision is to establish a collaborative atmosphere at school to develop individuals who will grow up to be respectful and to contribute to the betterment of our diverse society. Working together we'll continue to make Coats Elementary the best place to work and learn!
