Beverly Rudolph

My career as a public educator began at Martin Middle School in Tarboro, NC where I was a 7th grade English-language arts teacher.  I moved the next year back to my hometown of Asheville, NC and taught 8th grade English language arts for six years at North Buncombe Middle School.  After an eight year stint as a youth minister, I came back to teach in Concord, NC at JN Fries Middle School as a 6th grade English language arts teacher.   I entered school administration as a principal intern at East Chapel Hill High School in 2006 and stayed there for four more years as an assistant principal.  In 2011, I became the principal at Grey Culbreth Middle School here in the CHCCS district and came to love the families and students in this community.  I was excited and honored to be named the CHCCS Principal of the Year in my last year at CMS in 2016-17.  I am excited to serve as principal of this same community here at Carrboro High School.   I have a degree in Literature from UNC Asheville, a Masters of School Administration from UNC Chapel Hill, and am currently in doctoral studies at the University of Virginia.  In my free time, I love spending time with my family, traveling, going to see Tar Heel athletic events and DPAC Broadway shows, and hanging with my two sweet dogs.  My main claim to fame now is seeing the original cast in "Hamilton" in New York in 2016!
Assistant Principal
Spencer Hawkins

I began my career as a secondary school counselor in 1998.  As such, the forging of positive relationships with students, parents, and staff is a top priority for me.  In 2010, I transitioned into school leadership because I wished to be an active agent of school reform and maximized potential for all students.  I began working at Carrboro High School as assistant principal in 2012 but I have worked in Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools since 2010 (first as a Teacher Assistant at Estes Hills Elementary School while in graduate school and then as a Principal Intern at Smith Middle School). I have actually spent  time as an educator at all three levels in four NC school districts, and even as a private consultant specializing in the development of high school transition programs.  I have a BA in Political Science from UNC-Greensboro, a Masters of Counselor Education from NC State, and a Masters of School Administration from UNC Chapel Hill. I most recently earned my Ed.D. in Educational Leadership at UNC Chapel Hill in May 2017 after successfully defending my dissertation, the focus of which was equity as evidenced through high school scheduling and teacher assignment practices.  I am also a certified scuba diver, avid Tar Heels basketball fan,  and nerdy comic book collector who enjoys working out and traveling (especially to Walt Disney World with my wife and kids!).
 
Assistant Principal

Tomeka Ward-Satterfield

I am excited to join Carrboro High School and this team of Jaguar students, educators, families!  As an 18-year veteran educator, I have served students and their families in CHCCS, Durham Public Schools and Alamance-Burlington School System as a Teacher Assistant and Teacher for Exceptional Children, Elementary and High School Counselor, as well as, Middle and High School Administrator.  I have loved all the different schools and my roles in them but I believe that my time at Carrboro High promises to be the best yet!  My husband, Daron D. Satterfield is an attorney in private practice and he is also my unwavering supporter and motivator.  For the last thirteen years, our son, Darius, has brought a new and different purpose and drive to my life.  Frances A. Ward, my mother, has always been in my corner as cheerleader and role model.  I am also anchored by a host of other wonderful people in my church, community, and sorority.  When everyone is choosing a shade of blue to support, just know that, as a double alum, I will always be enthusiastically supporting my North Carolina Central University Eagles!
