Mr. John Kattawar

My name is John Kattawar, and I am the Assistant Principal here at Northeast Elementary School. I have recently made the transition from the classroom to administration. I’m honored to begin this new chapter as a Northeast cougar! I’m originally from Texas, but I grew up in Gainesville, Florida, Go Gators! I have lived here in Eastern North Carolina since 2003, and I call Washington home. I have taught both high and middle school for the last 15 years in Pitt, Martin,and Beaufort counties during my teaching career. On a personal note, I’m an avid waterman who enjoys the rich diversity of watersports unique to the North Carolina coastal plain. I live with my lovely wife Nanda, and our three teenage children. There is never a dull moment in our household! 

I look forward to my new role here at Northeast, and I look forward to working with all stakeholders to make the 2021-22 school year a successful one. I am committed to student success, and I feel truly blessed to be a part of the Northeast school community. Please know that my door is always open, and that I look forward to creating lasting relationships here at Northeast Elementary.
