Meet the AIG Teachers

Amy Stone

My name is Amy Stone and I am one of the AIG teachers for Laurel Park Elementary. This is my sixth year teaching at Laurel Park Elementary and seventh year teaching in Wake County. I graduated from East Carolina University and have my Masters of Art in Reading Education and Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. I hold three teaching licenses, one in Elementary Education K-6, one in Academically Intellectually Gifted (AIG) K-8 and one in Reading Education K-12. In December 2019, I became a National Board Certified Teacher. My NBCT specialization is in Literacy for Early and Middle Childhood. I am married and have three children. Alexandria, a graduate student at Duke University, Hunter, a sophomore at UNC-Charlotte and Preston a fourth grader here at Laurel Park. All three children keep me busy and full of life. Our favorite thing to do as a family is go to our beach house during our breaks and go sailing, swimming and riding bikes.

Annie Goodman

My name is Annie Goodman. I grew up in England and spent summers visiting family in Germany. I graduated for Meredith College with a Bachelor's Degree in Child Development and K-6 teaching license. I added on my AIG certification at UNC-P. I have been teaching for over 20 years and love it as much as ever now! I love children most of all, but I am also an animal lover, who used to own a farm and with all sorts of furry, featherly, scaley, and hooved friends. I love gardening both indoors and outdoors. I have two children and two dogs that keep me very active with frequent hikes and trails. On rainy days, there is nothing better than a good book, family game or movie.
