    Hi Elephant Friends! This is my second year teaching at the Mary Frances Wall Center. I find it both an honor and a privilege to work with young children and their families! I am oringally from Buffalo, NY but have lived in Cabarrus County since I was 3. I graduated from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte in May of 2019 with my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood and Family Development. With that, I also obtained my teaching liscense for birth through kindergarten. I am looking forward to a wonderful year with our new herd of elephant friends!

    Hey! I am Meggan McLendon and this will be my 3rd year at the Mary Frances Wall Center. I have worked with preschoolers for over 10 years now! I have been married for 21 years and have two teenagers who attend Mount Pleasant High School. I have two dogs and 1 cat who keep me busy when I am not at school and I love to travel (espically to national parks)! I am so excited for this school year!
