Mrs. Julie Harper-Edwards

Hi EES family! 

My name is Julie Harper Edwards. I am so excited to be one of your Assistant Principals! Although this is my first year working for Beaufort County Schools, I have 22 years in education. I spent 17 years teaching elementary school! The last five years I have been an administrator. My experiences in the classroom come from Eastern NC and a couple years in Maryland. I believe that every child deserves a top-notch education in a loving, supportive environment! I want to help each of our students maximize their potential!! Together, with our students’ families, we can make that happen! I am honored to be here and serving our community! 
I am an Eastern North Carolina native, growing up in Pamlico County. I attended ECU for my undergraduate degree, and am a Pirate at heart! I earned my Master’s in a different “purple and gold” environment through WGU in 2017. I moved to Washington with my significant other in 2020, and have enjoyed every second of being here. I have one son, who attends Washington High School, and one daughter, who is looking forward to starting school here in Beaufort County this fall! I have a step son and step daughter that attend BCS as well. In my spare time, you will probably find me on a ballfield watching our children play, reading a book, being near the water, or playing with our two dogs! 
I’m eager to see each of you in August!
