• Hi!


     My name is Mary Somers.


     This is my 30th year teaching in North Carolina. I have taught 5 years in kindergarten,  5 years in  K/1 combination classes, and this is my 20th year in first grade. My career began in Charlotte, where I taught for 6 years. This is my 17th wonderful year at Shadybrook.

    I graduated from Trevecca College (University now) in Nashville, Tennessee with a B.S. in Early Childhood Education and a Master's in Elementary Education: Emphasis in Curriculum and Instruction.

    I am thrilled to be your child's first grade teacher! Working together will ensure your child's success! I am looking forward to joining our efforts!  

    My husband and I have been married for 23 amazing years!  We have a black and tan miniature Dachshund named Dixie. She is all puppy, very excited to meet people and explore.


    Thank you!

    Mary Somers
