Hi! I'm Ann Partin. I've lived in Chapel Hill, North Carolina since 2001 when I moved here from my home state of Florida. Since my father served in the United States Air Force when I was growing up, my family and I lived in many interesting places, including Alaska, Texas, New York, North Dakota, Florida, and Germany - good thing I like to travel! I'm married to Rob Partin and have two children, Katie (junior at East Chapel Hill High) and Robby (7th grader at Phillips Middle School).

I have degrees in Education and Computer Science from Florida Atlantic University, and have been an elementary school teacher since 1991. This will be my seventh year teaching fourth grade at Estes Hills Elementary. I'm looking forward to getting to know my 2015-2016 Panthers!!

I am so excited to be starting my second year as part of the Estes Hills family!  I have had the pleasure of being a teacher for 8 years.  I have taught 6th grade in Connecticut, 1st and 2nd grades in Burlington and am very happy to be in 4th grade at Estes Hills again this year.    

On a personal note, I was raised in Connecticut and moved to North Carolina 3 years ago.  I have two daughters, one in 5th grade (and also at Estes), and a 2 year old.  

I look forward to many years of teaching in the Estes Hills community!

I am so excited to be here at Estes Hills for another year in 4th grade! I am originally from Long Island, NY & moved down to North Carolina in the summer of 2016. I graduated from Providence College with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary/Special Education & from Molloy College with a master’s degree in Teaching Special Education. Before moving to the Tar Heel state, I taught 4th grade for 4 years in Huntington, NY. I love coffee, shopping at Target, relaxing at the beach, and spending time with my friends and family, especially my 2 nieces and 2 nephews. Most of all, I LOVE teaching 4th grade!
