My name is Nancy Wicker and I am a graduate of Meredith College. I earned my BS in Child Development and I am certified K-6. This is my 20th year teaching in the public school system and my 12th year here at Mangum. I am beyond thrilled to be teaching Kindergarten, here at Mangum. I am married to a wonderful guy named Kevin. I have two terrific children. Michael is a junior at UNC-G where he is on the golf team and Libby is a rising 9th grader at Northern High School. I love DPS and Mangum has my heart.
I am so excited to be starting another year at Mangum!!! This will be my 14th year at this great school. I have 3 boys ( Culley, Mack and Luke) who are all in college and a wonderful husband (Rob) of 29 years. I graduated from Belmont Abbey College with a Early Childhood Education degree. I feel so lucky to be apart of this school. We truly have the best kids, parents, community, and teachers around!!!!
Hi everyone my name is Lauren Swain. I have lived in Bahama all my life and love it. I am so excited to be teaching Kindergarten this year and eager to start my teaching career here at Mangum! I love arts and crafts, the beach, and dogs. I am so excited to be here at Mangum and look forward to meeting everyone.
Hello Mangum Families! This is my 24th year with DPS! I am so excited to be an Instructional Assistant again this year in Kindergarten with Leslie Fenlon, as well as in 3rd grade with Chris Dixon. Because of my Nursing background, I particularly enjoy supporting students with various medical needs and being part of the Emergency Response team.
On a personal note, I have been married for 36 years to my college sweetheart, Michael. God has given us 2 wonderful children who are both married, one aorable grandson and another little one on the way! My hobbies include Photography, DIY crafts, and crocheting.
I am so thankful to be a part of the Mangum team!
I joined the Mangum Staff in 2017 as an Instructional Assistant. I have loved being a part of the Mangum Family. I was previously an assistant preschool teacher at ALDERSGATE Weekday School.
I have been married for 21 years to my husband, Jim. We have three daughters - Skylar, a sophomore at UNCC; Starr, a senior at VAHS and Summer, a sophomore at VAHS. I enjoy the beach, our farm and spending time with my family.
