Mrs. Cheryl Lawrence - Assistant Principal
Hello, Porter Ridge Pirates! I am very honored to serve as your assistant principal at Porter Ridge Elementary! I have served in a variety of roles in education since 1993 including elementary classroom teacher, literacy facilitator, assistant principal, and principal. Prior to my assignment at Porter Ridge Elementary I was principal at Waxhaw Elementary for four years and principal at East Elementary for two years. My request for an assignment change due to my daughter's current health needs has brought me to Porter Ridge, and I am very excited about this opportunity. My job as an administrator is very important to me, and I love being a part of the lives of my students, watching them grow and learn each and every day!
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Wingate University, a Master of Arts in Education from UNC-Charlotte, and a Masters of Arts in School Administration and Curriculum and Supervision from UNC-Charlotte. I truly consider myself to be a "lifetime learner" and I am so appreciative of the various educational opportunities I have had thus far in my life.
I reside in Wingate with my husband and daughter who attends Union County Public Schools. My oldest son recently graduated from NC State University and my middle son is a sophomore at UNC-Charlotte. (Go 49ers!) When I am not spending time with my family or learning new things to help my students and teachers at school, I love to read! You will never find me without a great book to read! In addition, I am an active member of my church and I am involved in volunteer work with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
I love being a part of the Porter Ridge team as we help our students be successful and driven to do their very best! Go Pirates! Let's show that Pirate Pride!!! ♥
