    Welcome to 7th grade Social Studies and ELA teachers and parents!


    My name is Mrs. Vaughn (Amundsen is my maiden name!) I will be your Social Studies and ELA teacher for 7th grade. I am so excited to meet all of you! We will have a great year together!


    I graduated from Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C. with a B.A. in Political Science and Art History, then received an Art History Master's degree from the University of Glasgow and then went back to school again to get my Master's in Education from Mercer University in Atlanta. As you can see, I like school myself!


    I was born in Austin, Texas but have lived in Raleigh, North Carolina since I was young. After graduating from undergrad, I lived in London getting my Master's degree in Art History and traveled around Europe along the way. Upon returning to the States, I lived in New York City working as an appraiser for auction houses, eventually moving back to the South, where I decided to go into my second career of teaching! I have always loved history and reading, and believe everyone can and should appreciate it! 


    I live in Greenville, with my husband Clay and our little dog, Pepper. In my free time, I love reading, traveling and spending time with my family! 


    Please feel free to contact me anytime for any questions!
