Greetings STEM Early College at N.C. A & T students and families,

I am so excited to be beginning here as the new principal of STEM Early College. Please allow me to share a little about my career as an educator. I am a native of North Carolina and proud former student of Guilford County Schools. I graduated from Ragsdale High School. After high school, I attended Winston Salem State University where I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I graduated with a master’s degree in School Administration from Cambridge College in Boston, MA. I also earned a Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. My educational career started in Newport News, VA as an elementary teacher for six years, then a middle school teacher for four years. Upon return to North Carolina, I taught middle school math and science at Welborn Middle School. As an educator who believed in empowering students and teachers to become leaders, I continued my career pathway as a school administrator. I become an assistant principal at Allen Jay Middle School before becoming the principal of Triangle Lake Montessori in High Point. During my time at Triangle Lake, I was honored to be named as Guilford County Schools’ Elementary Principal of the Year and the District Principal of the Year 2009-2010. From TLM, I have enjoyed being the principal of Greensboro College Middle College for the past seven years. I have to say, that working at all three levels of public school has helped me to become a better principal. I have had the opportunity to see how students start in school and how they finish. I realize how important educators are in shaping the lives of students. I am looking forward to working with the entire team of staff, students, and parents to ensure the students of STEM Early College have an excellent educational experience.


Ms. C. Keels, EdS
