• Hi, my name is Mrs. Petty. This is my third year at SEMS and my sixth year teaching. I have two children, two dogs, and two guinea pigs. I enjoy the outdoors, camping, reading, and crafting. I am a proud graduate of Guilford College, where I earned a B.A in education and history. I love reading and writing and want to inspire my students to become avid book lovers! Let's begin this journey together and see where reading takes us.
