We are who we are. The people at Grand Magnolia Academy make learning come alive. Read more about the amazing people who make Grand Magnolia a wonderful place to grow, learn, and explore, below.
Child Development Fellow
Annelyse Iglesias

In addition to being directly engaged with the children each day, our Fellow formulates a creative project (e.g., an art or music project) to enhance the learning environment.


Annelyse grew up in Miami, Florida before moving to Raleigh, North Carolina during her teenage years. She recently graduated from Elon University with a Bachelor of Arts in psychology, and hopes to attend graduate school to pursue further education in the field of psychology. At a young age, Annelyse developed a passion for working with children. She is excited to join Grand Magnolia this year to grow along with the children, and hopefully work on her own research project. In her spare time Annelyse loves to read, do arts & crafts, and shop at Target.
