Mrs. D'Aulan McCord
This is my sixteenth year of teaching, a second career I ventured into after working in the Mental Health field with children for years. A California native, I received my Associate in Arts degree from Diablo Valley College, my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from San Francisco State University, and completed my teaching coursework through the Fortune School of Education. I have lived in North Carolina for 10 years and obtained my Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I was Central Cabarrus High School's 2020-2021 Teacher of the Year and was a top 5 finalist for Teacher of the Year for Cabarrus County Schools.
I love teaching and take pride in the positive relationships I create with my students. I am looking forward to working with you all this year!
