Meet Mrs. Connor, our Head of School

Mrs. Connor’s love for education peaked at the age of 16 when she worked with preschool students in her hometown, Yanceyville, NC. After graduating high school she earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Birth-K and Elementary Education from the University of NC Greensboro. She also completed Masters Degree coursework in Special Education at the University of NC Pembroke. Mrs. Connor is a veteran educator who spent 10 years in the classroom with the Department of Defense as a General Education and Special Education Teacher and with Guilford County Schools as a Lower Elementary Montessori Teacher, Traditional Elementary Teacher and High School Varsity Cheerleading Coach.

She was awarded the North Carolina Principal Fellows scholarship which allowed her to study school administration full-time while completing a 2 year Principal Internship at elementary, middle and high schools in Guilford County. She earned a Master of School Administration degree from North Carolina A&T State University upon completion of the program. She has served as an Principal in Charter Public, Traditional Public, and Virtual Public schools in North Carolina. Mrs. Connor is currently studying to earn a Doctorate of Education degree in Interdisciplinary Leadership Studies, but is also pursuing Dual Language Immersion Administration Certification from East Carolina University.

Mrs. Connor is married to Kris Connor and has a son Christopher who will attend Casa Esperanza! In her spare time she enjoys traveling to new places with her family, lounging at the beach, shopping, and monogramming. She is a HUGE UNC Tarheel fan and enjoys watching (now that she no longer coaches) competitive cheerleading.
