I'm Sandra Garrison.
I've taught elementary age students in N.C. Public Schools and Independent schools for 25 plus years. This is my third year at Weatherstone and my third year teaching second graders and I LOVE IT!
My husband and I moved to Cary two years ago to be closer to our adult daughter and son.
I love living in the great state of North Carolina. I enjoy traveling, reading and spending time with friends and family.
