Assistant Principal's Corner

Swansboro Middle School, home of the Pirates, is comprised of hard-working teachers, students, and staff.  We strive for success inside and outside of the classroom with the goal of having well-rounded students.  We are AVID focused encouraging rigorous coursework and providing the strategies necessary to be successful in those settings.  In addition, there are many sports and academic activities in which students may participate:  football, softball, wrestling, Academic Derby, and Battle of the Books, to name a few. 

On a personal note, I grew up in Stacy, NC, attended East Carolina University for my BS in Elementary Education, and hold a doctorate in Educational Leadership from UNCW.  I achieved National Boards in 2008.  I have a supportive husband and two wonderful children, both pursuing nursing careers.


With Pirate Pride,

Dr. Howard
