Amy Brawley, Assistant Principal

I am excited to be with the Warrior family again this year! I am a Caldwell County native. In 2007, I graduated from Montreat College with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education degree. My teaching career began at Kings Creek in that same year. I earned my Masters in Middle Grades Mathematics from Western Carolina University as well as completing the program to earn my Administrative license. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, being outdoors, and traveling. I am looking forward to continuing this journey and can not wait to be part of all the great things that West Caldwell has to offer.

I taught Math and Business at Freedom High School for two years before moving to Cape Coral, FL where I taught fourth grade for eight years. Upon returning to NC, I taught 6th Grade ELA and Social Studies at Gamewell Middle for five years and then served as the Middle Grades Social Studies Instructional Facilitator for CCS for five years. I enjoy traveling and spending time with my husband, Dean, two daughters, Ashtyn and Kendal, son, Jerry, my new granddaughter, Arden, and our canines, Presley and Tucker.
