Assistant Principal, Kristin Dyer

Hello! My name is Kristin Dyer and I am an Assistant Principal at Manteo Elementary. As the newest member to the MES family, please allow me to introduce myself. This year marks my 22nd year in education and my 17th year here in Dare County. I previously served as the Assistant Principal at First Flight Elementary. Additionally, I spent 15+ years in the classroom in grades K-3. I hold a Master’s degree in Special Education, an Education Specialist degree in School Administration and am National Board certified.

As a life-long learner, I enjoy instilling that same value in students. I am passionate about reading and literacy instruction. I work diligently to ignite a love of reading in all students. My top priority will always be your child and their education. 

I am so excited to begin my journey here at Manteo Elementary and to work with the incredible students, teachers, and families!

Assistant Principal, Triva Day

My educational career began 18 years ago in Chesapeake, Va. where I taught English Language Arts for 8 years. In 2014, my family and I relocated to the OBX and I taught at Manteo Middle for 7 years. For the last 3 years, I have served as a reading interventionist and instructional coach at First Flight Middle.  

Throughout my teaching career, I have sought out leadership opportunities and always looked for ways to learn and grow. I love building relationships with students and staff and I’m always seeking new ways to increase student engagement. There is nothing better than watching kids have fun while learning!

I earned my National Board Certification in 2018 and my Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction in 2020. I also recently received my administration license in May 2024. 

I am beyond thrilled to begin this new adventure at MES and I look forward to getting to know and work with all of the staff and families!
