Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Gillian McNamara

Hello! My name is Ms. McNamara and I will be teaching 7th grade science this year. Last year, I was a substitute, school volunteer, and club soccer volunteer at Highland Middle. This is my first year teaching and I am very excited to meet each and every one of my students. It's going to be a great year! 

 A little bit about me: I was born and raised in Dunn, North Carolina and went to Triton High School. I graduated from Western Carolina University in 2019 with two Bachelor degrees in Criminal Justice and Forensic Anthropology. My hobbies include anything that deals with music, cooking, reading, video games, photography, watching crime documentaries, and listening to crime podcasts.

 While things are very different than how they normally are in school, I know that we will all work together to have the best year possible and I cannot wait for the first day of school!
