Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Wendy McCoy
Where are you from?
I am lucky to have grown up right here in Ocean Shores! I attended the North Beach School District since pre-school. I graduated from high school in 2001!
High school and college experience
After graduation, I attended Eastern Washington University in Cheney, WA. While I was there, I studied English and obtained my teaching degree in December of 2005.
Years of teaching experience
I began teaching English in the Fall of 2006. Prior to that, I coached basketball at North Beach in the winter of 2005. I continued to coach basketball until 2010 and coached volleyball between 2006 and 2010. Since coming back to NB in 2006, I taught English until 2014, when I transitioned into school administration.
Areas of knowledge Since graduating from Eastern in 2005, I continued my education to obtain a Master's Degree in Special Education and School Administration.
Words of wisdom
The best advice I can give is aimed to encourage: YOU are your only barrier.
The best quote is "Once a Hyak, always a Hyak," which has been repeated to me throughout my time as a student and employee of the district by one of my coaches, friends, and mentors, Bob Sutter. It is absolutely true for me, and I am dedicated to North Beach and its students and families.
How would you describe yourself and your hobbies and interests:
My hobbies and interests outside of school include everything and anything to do with my family. I love spending time with them and sharing their new experiences in life and loving the outdoors.
