Mrs. Kara McGhee

2nd and 3rd Grade

Exceptional Children Teacher


Hello Pelican Families,


I began my teaching career in 2006 after I graduated from Barton College in Wilson, North Carolina with a degree in Special Education.

I grew up in Rocky Mount, NC and moved to the Topsail area in 2017 with my family.  I love spending time with my family walking on the beach, visiting museums, and watching my kids play sports.

My passion is providing students with the tools they will need to help them succeed in education and life.  I believe every student can learn, grow and make progress toward their goals!
