New Beginnings and New Faces

Every school year is a new beginning. Students move on to new teachers, teachers welcome new students, and new subjects are ready to be learned. 

Asheboro City Schools will experience several exciting beginnings this year! We are pleased to welcome a few new faces to our school leadership teams.


Dr. Ryan Moody will serve as the new principal at Asheboro High School. Dr. Moody comes to AHS from J.M. Morehead High School in Eden, NC where he was the principal for the past four years. Prior to becoming a principal, Dr. Moody served as an assistant principal at Otis L. Hairston Middle School and Grimsley High School. Before entering administration, Dr. Moody taught marketing at Ragsdale High School for six years. 


Mr. Graham Groseclose is the new principal at North Asheboro Middle School. As a product of Asheboro City Schools and a former teacher at North Asheboro Middle School, Mr. Groseclose is passionate about serving the NAMS school community. The past four years Mr. Groseclose was an assistant principal at McCrary and Lindley Park Elementary Schools.


Ms. Brittany Roberts  is joining the team at AHS as an assistant principal. She completed the Northeast Leadership Academy/NC Principal Fellow program and served as a Principal Resident at E.E. Smith High School in Fayetteville, NC. While at E.E. Smith, Ms. Roberts was the 9th grade administrator.


We are pleased to welcome Ms. Michelle Harger as the assistant principal at Guy B. Teachey Elementary School. Ms. Harger came to the district in 2017 to teach fifth grade at Charles W. McCrary Elementary School. Most recently, Ms. Harger served as an EC Program Specialist before transitioning to the Instructional Facilitator at Guy B. Teachey for the 2021-2022 school year. 


Ms. Kelly Patton will serve as the assistant principal at Charles W. McCrary Elementary School. Mrs. Patton joined Asheboro City Schools in 2016 as an Academically Gifted teacher. Mrs. Patton transitioned to the role of Instructional Facilitator at Charles W. McCrary Elementary School for the 2021-2022 school year. Her familiarity with the families and staff at McCrary will make this a smooth transition.


Ms. Amber Andrews will begin her administrative career as the assistant principal at Balfour Elementary School. Ms. Andrews previously worked in Guilford County Schools where she was the lead science teacher and curriculum facilitator at Greensboro Middle College. She completed her administration internship at Mendenhall Middle School,


Other administrators transferring to new positions are  Mr. Jonathan Dillion, assistant principal at North Asheboro Middle School, moving to Asheboro High School. In addition, Mrs. Keisha Dawalt will transition from Balfour to North Asheboro Middle School as the assistant principal. 


“With the addition of new administrative staff we are working to cultivate a championship culture, build collaborative relationships, and deepen learning in our classrooms and throughout our halls,” says Superintendent, Dr. Aaron Woody. “Our entire staff is looking forward to the return of students on August 29th. We are committed to safety, innovation and a student centered approach each and every day.”
