I love teaching here at Estes Hills and have been here for 15 years. Prior to teaching 2nd grade, I taught grades 3 and 4. I earned a BA and a Master's degree from North Carolina Central University. I have two daughters. Originally from New York, I currently live in Durham. I enjoy volunteering in the community, reading, outdoor activities and traveling.

Hello! My name is Cathy Chianese and I am a Chapel Hill native. I graduated from UNC with a Bachelor's degree in elementary education and a Master's degree in reading education. In August 1989, I started teaching first grade in Charlotte, NC. In January of 1999, I started teaching at Estes Hills Elementary where I have taught both kindergarten and 1st grade. Teaching 2nd grade is my favorite though.

Greetings! I have been an elementary teacher for seventeen years and am so excited to be serving my eleventh year as a second grade teacher at Estes Hills Elementary. I earned my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Penn State University and earned my National Board Certification in 2013. I am married and have three daughters: Rachel is attending Duke University, Ellie is attending Tufts University, and Micah is at East Chapel Hill. I am looking forward to another exciting year of learning and fun in the Second Grade.
