Hello. Hola! Salaam!
My name is Scarlet Linville and I am so excited to be your new Principal! I am a native of Yadkin County and the mother of six amazing children. I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Spanish from North Carolina Central University in Durham, NC. EAGLE PRIDE!!! I taught in Durham Public Schools for five years. After receiving my license to teach English as a Second Language from UNC Chapel Hill, I went to teach in the Middle East for six years.
While in the United Arab Emirates, I worked for a private school for two years and then for the Ministry of Education doing school reform for four years. It was there that I acquired my basic abilities in reading, writing and speaking the Arabic language. I also received my Master's degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Gloucesterhire, United Kingdom.
In 2009, I returned to the United States and began teaching 6th grade at Hill Middle School in Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools. After two years, I was selected to participate in the first cohort of the Piedmont Triad Leadership Academy, which prepares school administrators to lead in highly impacted schools by serving as a full time school administrator and completing coursework at UNC Greensboro.
Upon completion of the program, I served as a Curriculum Coordinator for five months and then became the Assistant Principal of Hall-Woodward Elementary School for three and a half years.
It is truly an honor to be selected to lead Ashley Academy! My passion is helping people to reach their goals, to become better! Every child deserves a quality education, full of fun and purpose!
Therefore, I would like to share this quote as a reminder to us all, as we mold the lives of the precious children entrusted in our care!! Let us ponder these wise words, so that we can make sure our students develop the habit of EXCELLENCE and become successful Global citizens!
Excellence is an art won by training and habituation.
We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence,
but we rather have those because we have acted rightly.
We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”
