I was born and raised in Washington, NC which is better known as “Little Washington”. I hold a Bachelor’s in Science in Child Development from Meredith College. I have been working in the field of early childhood education for over 10 years. I am very family oriented and enjoy spending time with my family any chance I can get. I enjoy traveling in my spare time. I believe that all children are unique in their own ways. My goal is to provide children with a fun, positive, engaging and safe learning environment that will allow them to foster all their abilities and skills. I am extremely excited about joining the Holly Springs Academy family and serving as Center Director.
My name is Shanese Thompson, from Clayton, NC. I attended North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University in Greensboro, NC. I have been in the early education for over seven years in administration as well as the classroom. I have a six-year-old daughter named Laila. When I am not working, I am a cheerleading coach for ages 4-18 years old. In my free time, I love to be outside with my family or making hair bows. I have a strong passion for working with children and their families. Being able to be apart of a team that provides quality education, care, and love to families is something I have always wanted to do. I am excited to be apart of the Holly Springs Academy team.
