Mrs. Tracey Nixon

Hello and Welcome! My name is Tracey Slade Nixon, and I am proud to serve as principal at Northside High School in Pinetown, NC. I was born and raised in Beaufort County, and I graduated Northside High School in 1993. I have one son, Tristen, who recently graduated from high school and is attending college at BCCC.

I earned my Bachelors of Science Degree in Middle Grades Education (Social Studies and Language Arts) from North Carolina State University, and I earned my Masters of Adult Leadership and Supervision from East Carolina University. In addition, I currently hold a post-secondary Educational Specialist degree from East Carolina University. I believe that education should be ongoing and that we are never too old to learn.
I began teaching in 1999 at Zebulon GT Magnet Middle. In 2000, I moved back to Beaufort County, and worked at PS Jones Middle School for 20 years. I began my teaching career there as a Language Arts teacher. I moved from a teacher's role to an assistant principal in 2007, and I was named principal in 2011. I moved to NHS on July 1, 2020 and I successfully completed my first year as a high school principal. I am looking forward to another exciting and reward school year for 2021 - 2022.  
Our staff is dedicated, hard-working and student oriented.
