About Mrs. Sykes

Welcome to my website where you can use the sidebar at the left to navigate. This site is updated weekly and will inform you with information you may need to know throughout the school year. Please visit often!
    My name is Traci Sykes and I LOVE teaching First Grade! I love that everyday is a new adventure and learning experience for both the children and me! I am happy to be part of the SHE family and I am glad to be a part of Mecklenburg County Public Schools. I received my Bachelors in Elementary Education and Masters in Teacher Leadership at University of Phoenix. I have been married for 10 years and have two wonderful little boys, Tyler- 9 and Trevor- 6. I have lived in Mecklenburg all of my life and it is a great place to be! I enjoy playing on Lake Gaston in the summer and hunting with my family during the winter. I am excited and ready to begin the 2015-2016 school year that will be full of collaborative learning with a focus on our 21st century learners!!! 

You can contact me through email or you can leave me a message at the school number listed below.
