Greetings Wilkesboro Eagles and Families! My name is Shanna Bumgarner. I am ecstatic to serve as your new assistant principal this school year. I attended all of my elementary school years here at Wilkesboro so this school holds special value to me and I feel very sentimental to be here and to serve to the best of my abilities. I currently live in North Wilkesboro with my husband, our two children, and two dogs.
I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Lees McRae College. I am nearing the completion of a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Western Governors University. I am also a National Board-Certified Teacher. I have been dedicated to the field of education for sixteen years. I have worked with students ranging in age from Kindergarten through 5th grade in a variety of roles including ESL.
I support our school’s mission and vision which is to empower to learn, inspire to lead, believe in self and others, and empower all learners to reach their greatest potential. I believe education is a life-long process filled with experiences and opportunities and we should always strive for personal growth. It is my goal to maintain a safe and positive learning environment for all while also working collaboratively to build relationships with teachers, students, families, and the entire community.
Thank you for welcoming me and working alongside our team to make this school year the best it can be! Please feel free to contact me if I may help in any way.
Mrs. Shanna Bumgarner
