Sally Moody had been a reading teacher at Lacy for the past 6 years. She brings 25 years of experience and knowledge of research-backed practices to help struggling readers. This year she will be working specifically with kindergarteners, first and second graders who need additional support. The groups will be flexible and change depending on the changing needs of the students in these grades.
Sally is originally from Winston Salem, NC, but has lived in Nashville, Boulder and Miami. She moved to Raleigh in 2000. She and her husband, Rhett, have 3 sons who are proud graduates of Lacy Elementary. Her dog, Wilson, is well-known at Lacy as his antics are often used to illustrate reading lessons.
Elizabeth Womack is a second grade teacher assistant with Mrs. Acai. She has been teaching at Lacy for 3 years, but has been a Lacy mom for 11 years. She feels her contributions not only include assisting with instruction and teacher support, but building relationships with the students and inspiring self- confidence that will guide them towards future success.
Elizabeth grew up in Farmville, NC, but has lived in Raleigh since college. She and her husband, Clark, have 2 children, one at Broughton and one here at Lacy! She also has a niece and a nephew who attend Lacy. Elizabeth enjoys kids, cooking, walking and loves spending time with friends and family at the beach.
Jody Addeo is the Project-Based Learning teacher assistant at Lacy, a position she has been in since 2013. In this role, she works with teachers to create new projects and learning units for the students. The projects address common core standards and incorporate collaboration, communication and critical thinking skills. She also incorporates technology as it becomes more integrated into the classrooms. Jody wants her students to learn life skills while researching and presenting their products, realizing that they have learned more from the process than just the end product. Her projects allow students to be creative in problem solving, giving them responsibility and letting them decide how to complete the projects. She strives to promote strong, independent children.
After living in Melbourne, Australia, for 10 years, Jody and her husband have been in Raleigh with their 2 children since 2008. They chose Raleigh for “it’s southern charm, business growth opportunity and sense of community.”

Kelli Wilson has been working at Lacy for the past 8 years. She is a second grade teacher assistant for Mrs. Acree.

She loves working with the kids and giving them that extra bit of attention to help them succeed.
Kelli and her husband, JJ, have been married for 23 years, spending the last 10 of those years in Raleigh. They have 2 children who are now both freshmen, one at University of South Carolina and the other at Broughton High School. Allie and Davis are both proud graduates of Lacy Elementary!
