Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Marybeth Avery

I am excited that I have had the opportunity over the last 4 years to lead East Lincoln High School, a high school in my community, and to work with students and families I’ve gotten to know over the years from teaching at Catawba Springs Elementary and living in the Denver area. My passion for people, service and education continue to be my goals as a leader. I am a consistent advocate for Lincoln County Schools and our students.

My intention has always been to continue Mustang traditions while facilitating a school culture pivoting on teaching and learning. I hope to strengthen community support for ELHS and to build positive professional relationships with students, families and staff while we’re working together to develop graduates that are college and career ready for the future.

I have worked with Lincoln County Schools for 28 consecutive years. My first teaching position was at ELHS! I also taught in various positions at Catawba Springs Elementary. I served as an Assistant Principal at North Lincoln Middle School and then as principal at Asbury Academy before returning “home” to ELHS.  

In all things EAST, Avery!
