Principal's Message

I attended the University of North Carolina at Wilmington graduating with a degree in elementary education (2000). I received my Master’s in School Administration from the North Carolina State University. I taught 4th and 5th grades for 7 years and served as an assistant principal for 9 years.

I am married to Meagan Parrish who is also an educator. She teaches 4th grade. I am a father of four children, ages 2,3,9, and 12.

I believe that all students can learn. I believe our job as educators is to help students develop into the absolute best version of themselves. I agree with Marva Collins who said, “There is a brilliant child locked inside each student.”  I believe in offering students engaging learning experiences that promote independence, foster a love of learning, and help prepare students for the future. As principal of Micro Elementary, my mission is to make our school the best it can possibly be.
