Ms. Tiffany Mangum
I was born and raised in Craven County where I graduated from West Craven High School in 2003. I then attended and graduated from Craven Community College where I obtained two Associates Degrees in both Arts and Fine Arts. After attending Craven Community College, I went on to attend East Carolina University where I graduated in 2009 receiving my Bachelor’s Degree in Dance Education.
At H.J. MacDonald, I am the Dance Instructor as well as the website manager and club coordinator. I also Coach the H.J. MacDonald’s Dance Team, which participates in several school activities as well as in community events thoughout the school year. This is my ninth year teaching at H.J. MacDonald. During the 2015-2016 school year, I was voted H.J. MacDonald’s "Teacher of the Year".
I strive for perfection in both myself and my students. I work hard to build relationships with my students and I will take time with your child to ensure their needs are met and to reach their full potential as a student.
In my spare time, I enjoy teaching dance at a local dance studio. This is in my eighth year as Assistant Director and Dance Instructor for Get the Pointe Studio. I also like to spend time with my fiance Todd, family and friends, which is very important to me. I love Pinterest and enjoy working on arts and craft ideas in my spare time. I feel has as if I have a bright spirit and I like to see others smile and have fun while they are learning.
