Mr. Craig Faircloth

This will be my 15th year teaching.  Previously I worked in Harnett County, Cumberland County, and have been in Johnston County the last five years.

2006-2007 - Western Harnett Middle School, Health and PE Teacher, Asst Football Coach, Asst Baseball Coach

2007-2015 - Douglas Byrd Middle School, Health and PE Teacher, Assistant Athletic Director, Head Football Coach, Head Wrestling Coach, Head Baseball Coach

2015-2020 - Smithfield Selma High, Health and PE Teacher, Weight Liftting Teacher, Head JV Football Coach, Varisty Football Offensive Line Coach, Head Softball Coach, Head Wrestling Coach

 I graduated in 2005 from East Carolina University with a Master's Degree in Sports Administration.  I earned my Bachelor's Degree in 2003 in Physical Education.

As an undergraduate I worked in Recreational Services in the Intramural Department as a Sports Official in Flag Football, Basketball, and Softball.  I was an All Campus Selection in each of those sports several times.  I officiated extramural tournaments in Wilmington, Chapel Hill, Maryland, Ohio, Virginia, and New Orleans.  My biggest accolade was being selected as an All American Flag Football Official in 2003 where I was one of the top 20 collegiate flag football officials in the country.  My "stripes" were retired in 2007 as I was selected for the ECU Recreational Services Wall of Fame.

As a Graduate Student, I was the Assistant Coordinator for Club Sports.

I was also active in my fraternity, Delta Chi, where I served multiple leadership positions including Intramural Chairman, Alumni Relations Officer, Associate Member Chairman, and Alumni Board of Trustees.  I was also a founding member of the Cape Fear Delta Chi Alumni Chapter.

This school year, I will continue to coach softball and wrestling at SSS while teaching at Choice Plus.  I am originally from Fayetteville, but have grown to call Johnston County home.  This year will present its challenges, but will be very rewarding.

 

I have two children, Spencer, age 13 and Dottie, age 12.  I enjoy playing golf in my free time.  I also enjoy live music, and attending various festivals.  Life is an adventure.  It should be new every day.
