I want to share with you how honored I am to be the new Superintendent of Tyrrell County Schools. I come to Tyrrell County from Madison County in western North Carolina where I served as a principal and Curriculum Director for the past ten years. I look forward to the opportunity to work closely with the faculty and staff of each of our schools so that we can deliver the best education possible for our students. I bring a strong belief in the positive role of public education in the lives our students; a profound respect for the Board, faculty and staff; and a commitment to safety, academic excellence, and serving the larger community of Tyrrell County.
I would like to invite families and community members to be a part of our schools and the success of our students. Our community is only made stronger by the active participation of our stakeholders in school activities, volunteerism, beautification efforts and fund raising. Tyrrell County Schools has an outstanding team of educators who care deeply about the success and well-being of our students. Please reach out to your child’s teacher or principal this year, be engaged and be informed about the progress of your child. The exciting work of education requires collaboration, communication, and supportive relationships.
In my first year as Superintendent I will be dedicated to listening to members of the Tyrrell County Schools community. Please know that my door will always be open as we build relationships and continue to establish a trusting and caring environment in each of our schools. My primary goals for the first year are:
Ensure high levels of achievement for each child.
Listen to and involve community stakeholders.
Promote district wide improvement.
Please see below the Mission statement for Tyrrell County Schools which provides an important focus for our district, and a reminder of the role we all play in the everyday lives of our students.
Mission: The Tyrrell County Schools System dedicates its efforts to developing a responsible and productive citizenry, well equipped to meet the challenges of the 21st century. We will accomplish this mission through the commitment and cooperation of our diverse community.
I look forward to working with each of you this year.
