Greetings CPS Family! 

I am honored and excited to be your Principal at Chocowinity Primary School!  After serving students and families as a teacher at CPS for twenty-two years, I am thrilled to continue working with this community as an administrator. 

 A lifelong resident of Chocowinity, I attended schools here in Beaufort County before attending East Carolina University. At ECU, I obtained both an undergraduate degree and Master's Degree in Elementary Education. As a National Board Certified Teacher with over two decades of teaching experience, I taught Reading Recovery, 1st grade, 3rd grade, and 5th grade. I completed my Master's of School Administration degree from UNC Wilmington in 2019. I am passionate about instructional leadership and working with this learning community to ensure our children's success.

I live here in Chocowinity with my husband, Larry, a Logistic Manager at a company in Washington. We have one daughter, Laura, who recently entered the workforce as a Cardiovascular ICU Nurse at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville. Our second child, Emmie, is a precious Yorkshire Terrier.

I strive to continue the standard of excellence for teaching and learning at Chocowinity Primary School. Through building positive relationships with stakeholders and providing high-quality learning experiences, I anticipate a successful school year!

Please feel free to contact me to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas that will contribute to the learning of our students here at CPS!

Mrs. Whittington
