Meet Principal Harper!                         


 It has been my honor to have worked in the education field for 32 years. After earning my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education at Elon University, I spent twelve years in the classroom teaching students ages 4-10. My first job was in Summerville, SC then I moved to the Winston-Salem Forsythe County School System.

  In 1992 I earned a Master of Education from University of North Carolina at Greensboro with Certification in Administration and Certification as a Curriculum Specialist.  

I started my career in school administration with the Randolph County School System. For the last 23 years I have served in an administrative capacity, with 21 of those years in the Randolph County School System and two years in the Guilford County School System. During this time I have worked as an administrator in all levels, elementary, middle and high school.

 My greatest achievement has been to open Hopewell Elementary School where I have served as principal for 13 years. Under my leadership our school has earned the following awards:

  •    2003-Recipient of Light House Award
  •    2009-Selected as a Signature School
  •    2011-National Finalist for Award For Academic Excellence for Immersion Programs
  •    2014-21st Century Learning Exemplar School Award

These achievements do not happen by chance, but because of the outstanding staff who work diligently to meet the needs of all of our students and the continual community support that has always been a contributing factor to our great success as a school.

 I am looking forward to another excellent school year serving your children!
