Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Tonya Petty
My name is Tonya Petty. I am a North Carolina Native and graduate of Kaplan University. I have earned a Masters Degree in Religious Studies, a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management and an Associate in Applied Science Degree in Early childhood Education.
I am married to the greatest guy in the whole world, Tyrone and we have 2 daughters Katonia and Mariah. I can't wait to tell you about our five grandchildren and our German Rottweiller, Marley.
I love to learn, I love to teach, sing and dance! I played sports throughout my life and still enjoy a good game periodically! My favorite color is orange and did I mention I love chocolate!
I was the owner and operator of two childcare centers in Sanford, N.C. for over 26 years and I am so excited to be a part of the Highland Elementary elite teaching team and to meet my students and their families in 2nd grade!
