It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I am able to return to serve the West Lincoln community and with the hard-working staff of WLHS. I moved to Catawba County to teach and coach football in 2006 after earning my Bachelor’s of Arts in Education, majoring in Physical and Health Education and minoring in Biology. Shortly after I moving to North Carolina, I married my wife Andrea and have two children, Addison and Bryson.
Through my 14 years in public education I have served multiple districts in both Lincoln and Catawba Counties as a high school science teacher, building level administrator, and as a district leader in the Exceptional Children’s department. In addition, I have earned a Master’s Degree in School Administration from Western Carolina and a Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. As a result of these experiences, I have learned that students have a very diverse set of needs and together we must continue to grow and learn as educators because we have one purpose: doing what is best for the students.
It is with a strong commitment that I am joining WLHS and look forward to leading and learning together as a community.
I am excited to begin the 2021-2022 school year as an Assistant Principal at West Lincoln High School. As an Exceptional Children’s teacher, I co-taught Math and English Language Arts in Gaston County, for 7 years.
Prior to this, I taught Constitutional Law, Criminal Investigations and Ethics as an adjunct professor, at Cleveland Community College; for 20 years. Most recently, I was an Assistant Principal at North Lincolnton Middle School.
I would like to take this brief opportunity to introduce myself as one of your new Assistant Principals for the 2021-2022 (and hopefully many more) school year. Though this is not my first time on the west end of the county, I consider myself truly privileged to work with all of you at the high school level. The sense of community that runs deeply within your school environment is something that I am looking forward to rejoining. The past two years I have been serving as the Athletic Director at North Lincoln High School. My love for all athletics gave me an unique edge on supporting the coaches and players throughout my years in this position. On the homefront my wife, Jennifer Beane, and I have 4 wonderful children. I value our family time together and am excited to introduce our kids to Rebel Country.
