"Where Leaders are Grown"

Our theme this year is Where Leaders are Grown.  North Elementary is a wonderful place to learn and grow.  You will have the opportunity to meet many wonderful people at our school and within our community.  My hope is that all students and teachers will have a great year with many learning opportunities.

North's Mission:

"I promise to be a responsible, hard-working, life-long learner."

About Me

I am extremely honored to be a part of the North Elementary community.  I am a fifth-year assistant principal here at North, 21st year in education.

I graduated from Rock Hill High School, Class of 1992. In 1997, I received my undergraduate degree from Winthrop University in Elementary Education. I began my career as an elementary teacher for the Rock Hill School District in the fall of 1997. I have earned two Master of Education degrees in Technology and Administration.

I enjoy deer and turkey hunting as well as fishing in my free time. My family includes my wife, Joy, teacher for the Lancaster County School District, and our two children, Britt and Emily. We enjoy vacationing at Folly Beach and Isle of Palms in the Charleston area.
