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 grades K-2nd. Second is my favorite.
I am married and have 2 children. My daughter is a recent graduate from Appalachian State University (oh my!) and is a 2nd grade teacher in Hillsborough. My son will be a freshman at Caldwell Community College in Boone, NC.
I have 3 dogs. Bella and Mia are 5 year old labrador siblings. They are very cuddly and love to lick. We added Wilson to our family in early June 2016. He is a labrador mix. All three love to ride in the car.
I live in Mebane, NC. It takes about 30 minutes for me to get to school each day.
I love to read. When I finish one book, I start another one right away.
My name is Sara Anbar. This is my 16th year at Estes Hills. I am married and have 2 boys. I live in Chapel Hill. I love to read, play tennis, and eat out.
