Ms. Leigh Ann Fansler

Ms. Fansler is new to the Ridge, having previously worked as an elementary librarian and a special education teacher.  She is an avid reader and book aficionado, and is looking forward to learning more about technology.  When she is not at Uwharrie, she can be found reading, walking with her dog, and PC gaming.

The TechMates program started at Uwharrie Ridge in 2023. These students work with Ms. Morris and the IT department to learn to repair computers and assist students and staff with technology issues.
