Sarah Ambrose, Assistant Principal
Hello, Wintergreen Gators and Eagles!
I am a Martin County native and have worked in education and with children of all ages for 24 years. I attended UNC-CH and began working with children after college as a nanny. I worked as a preschool teacher for 4 years in Richmond, VA and later in eastern NC. I attended ECU and completed the licensure requirements and began teaching 5th grade. I taught in Martin County at Edna Andrews, a small school in Hamilton, NC. I worked at EA for 13 years as a 4th and 5th-grade teacher. During my time in the classroom, I also pursued an advanced degree in Reading Instruction and my National Board certification.
After completing my Administrative degree at Gardner Webb University I was ready for a new challenge. For the past 2 years, I have worked in Elizabeth City with Elizabeth City Pasquotank Schools as an Instructional Coach and as an Assistant Principal.
After 2 years of commuting, I was ready to look for a position closer to home, friends, and family. I am very excited to have the opportunity to join the Wintergreen Family. I look forward to working with you and learning from you.
