Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Tracy McIntyre
"Laughter is medicine for the soul." is one my quotes that I live by. I was born and raised in Syracuse,NY but fell in love with the oceans of NC on a family trip. Living in Swansboro is such an incredible experience. I have two cats who make my life an interesting adventure at home. I am currently working on becoming a foster to adopt parent in Onslow County.
I received my Bacholars degree in Education on May 15, 1999 at Oswego State University in Oswego, NY. My degree includes a Science concentration with a middle school extension.
I received my Masters degree in Elementary Education on December 19, 2015 at East Carolina University in Greenville, NC. This degree also includes AIG certification.
I have been teaching for over 21 years, 12 years in Onslow County Schools at Richlands Elementary and 4 years at Queens Queek Elementary. I have taught grades second through 7th grade. My specialty lies in math and especially in Science.
I have been the Odyssey of the Mind coach for the last 12 years. This position has been very fun to be involved in and help create "out of the box thinkers." In March 2018, the team won 1st place at regionals and 3rd place at state competition. In March 2019, the team won 1st place at regionals. In March 2019, the team placed 4th place. :)
I also began the first underwater robotic club in Onslow County. Robotic Engineer Club competed with middle and high schoolers with their underwater ROV at competition. They learned alot about the experience and so did I as a first time coach of such a club.
Some other positions include coaching the Science Olympiad team, the coach for the Math Counts team, and being a mentor.
