Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Kimberly Petralia, and I am very excited to be a part of the Countryside family for the tenth year. This is my second year as the Dean.
I have two children-a daughter named Emma who is a freshman in college at UNC Charlotte, and a son named Cohen, who is in the ninth grade. I also share my house (and couch, bed...) with two dogs, a cat, and a bunny.
I attended North Carolina State University and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology, and then went on to earn my Elementary Teaching License and Reading Certification at East Carolina University. In 2013, I graduated from George Mason University with a Masters Degree in Special Education. In December of 2019, I completed the classwork portion of working toward a certification in Applied Behavior Analysis from George Mason. This Fall, I will again join George Mason in earning a second Masters Degree in Education Leadership.
I look forward to working together to ensure your child has a terrific school year!
