Message from WES Principal
Hello Wilkesboro families! My name is Beckie Spears, and I am excited to share another school year with you.  Wilkesboro Elementary has been part of my life forever -- first as a student, then as a teacher, as a parent, and now as a principal.  It is an honor and privilege to work with your family and this community, and I am proud of our school's long tradition of excellence.  I am a graduate of Meredith College (BA in English) and Appalachian State University (Masters in School Administration), and I am a National Board Certified Teacher.  I have spent the past 26+ years teaching, learning, and collaborating as a classroom teacher, an AIG resource teacher, an instructional specialist, and an assistant principal.  I live in Wilkesboro with my husband and our two daughters.
I enjoy working with students and their families to make each year the best school year ever.  We want our school to be a positive, nurturing learning community where students and teachers are inspired to learn, supported to grow, and empowered to achieve.  We believe in a whole-child approach, and it is our goal to make each school day enjoyable and rewarding.  Learning is our passion, and when we combine joy and teamwork with focused effort, we can achieve amazing possibilities.  
We appreciate the opportunity to be part of your family's life, and we thank you in advance for your support, encouragement, involvement, and patience this year.  I am here to support you, so please call me at 336-838-4261 if I can assist you or your child in any way.

Message from WES Assistant Principal ~

Greetings Wilkesboro Eagles! I am honored and excited to work with you as your assistant principal. I am ready to learn and grow with the students, staff, and parents to help children succeed.

I finished my 17th year in Wilkes County serving as an instructional specialist and elementary teacher. I am looking forward to becoming a part of the community and team at Wilkesboro Elementary. In addition to a masters degree in elementary education and administration leadership from Appalachian State University I also have a degree in graphic arts and technology education. I have always enjoyed learning and being in school. My husband is also a teacher in Wilkes County and we have both lived here our entire lives. Our three children will be in high school, middle school, and elementary school this year. 

We value education in my family and see it as a great opportunity for greatness. We are all learners regardless of age or experience. This year will be a great year for exploration and learning not only academics but also how to be a productive learner as well. I look forward to building relationships and getting to know each of you this school year. 

Mrs. Andrea Byers
