Morgan Assistant Principal - Ross McNeil
I cannot express enough how excited I am to be a Morgan Maverick! I was born and raised in Winston-Salem and graduated from Mount Tabor High School. I knew I wanted to become a teacher from my experiences in working with youth outside of the traditional classroom. I have a passion for the outdoors which led me to attending Appalachian State and studying Physical Education. After I graduated, I was a PE teacher at Diggs-Latham Elementary. I later was accepted into the North Carolina Principal Fellows program where I was able to attend the University of North Carolina for my masters in school administration. For my administrative internship I worked at Moore Elementary School.
I have always had a passion for working with youth. During and after my undergraduate and into my teaching years I was always working with the youth in some capacity. These experiences include running a summer camp where students would do outreach projects in the communities of Ashe and Alleghany County. Youth would complete projects from wheel chair ramps, porches, decks, etc. During this time, I was also a ski instructor at Sugar Mountain and Breckenridge CO. Later I became a ski and snowboard race coach at Sugar Mountain, NC and coached the Appalachian State Ski Team. I was also fortunate to work at Camp Cheerio in the fall and spring where we would take school groups hiking, canoeing, climbing, practice archery, and other outdoor experiences.
Currently my wife and I live in Winston-Salem and love spending time with our dog “June”. When not at school we love to ski, ride bikes, and be outdoors as much as possible. We both love Forsyth county and consider it home.
