Born and raised in Dare County, I attended Dare County schools and graduated from Manteo High School in 1998. I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and my Masters Degree in School Administration from East Carolina University. Go Pirates!! I have been a classroom teacher for 16 years, having taught second through fifth grades with 12 of those years in Currituck County. Throughout the majority of my teaching experience I have always enjoyed taking on leadership roles and working with my teammates to accomplish goals and tasks. These experiences as a teacher leader have molded my vision for school leadership. I am excited to be back in Dare County, where it all began for me. More importantly, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with everyone at MES!
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!
