Principal's Message



    Hello, Eagles and Gators!

    Welcome to Wintergreen! The faculty and staff of Wintergreen are excited to have the opportunity to work with you and your children. 

    I have been an educator since graduation from East Carolina University in 1990. I was a classroom teacher serving students in Hyde County and Carteret County and 1998, I returned to Pitt County and began my employment with Pitt County Schools as a fourth-grade teacher at Ayden Elementary School.  I earned a Master's in School Administration in 2004 and spent the next several years serving as a PCS assistant principal and principal of Eastern Elementary. 

    I have two amazing children, Malorie and Austin and an equally amazing husband, Chuck.

    I am passionate about children and education.  Thank you for allowing me the honor of serving the Wintergreen Community!

    My hope is to provide every child a wonderful place to play, learn and grow.
