Mr. Dan Kerwin

Welcome to the Powhatan Pride website.  My name is Dan Kerwin and I’m excited to begin my 20th year in education.  Prior to joining the Powhatan family, I have served in multiple capacities in education.  I started my career in Johnston County as a fifth grade teacher at Princeton and received the First Year Teacher of the Year Award for the Bulldogs.  After Princeton, I moved to Wake County to work at Brooks Museums Magnet.  At Brooks, I was fortunate to learn many instructional strategies as a third grade teacher, instructional technology coordinator, and as a magnet coordinator.  After completing my Masters in Administration degree from North Carolina State, I served as the Assistant Principal at Wiley International Magnet.  At this time in my career, I chose to return to Johnston County to be closer to my family and to teach fourth grade at West Clayton.  During my time at West Clayton, I started course work for my Educational Administration and Supervision, EdS degree at East Carolina.  Prior to becoming principal at Powhatan, I served as the Assistant Principal at Riverwood Elementary.  During this time, I have completed my EdS degree and look forward to the learning opportunities of the future.

My wife and I are fortunate to have both of our children attend Johnston County Schools.  We look forward to continuing to be a part of the Powhatan Community.  Thank you for your commitment to our school and we welcome you as we partner together for the 2019-2020 school year.
