I am super excited for the opportunity to join the Avery's Creek team and working with your family as the new assistant principal in building future leaders.

The Roberson community has been my home for my entire career beginning in 1996 as an assistant teacher and bus driver for Estes Elementary. During my time as an assistant, I received my degree in elementary education and was fortunate to continue at Estes as a teacher in grades 2, 3 and 4. In 2011, my career led me to teaching 5th and 6th grades at Koontz Intermediate while earning my master's in administration. My experiences in working with the Avery's Creek community in the upper grades have always been positive and rewarding resulting in a Win-Win for the students, families,  school and community as a whole.

I look forward to working with you this year.

The following code sets forth the rules prohibiting certain types of student conduct while riding, waiting for, or leaving a school bus. It is in the interest of the safety of transported pupils, bus drivers, and the general public that they are adopted. A student found in violation of any of these rules may receive punishment as severe as having his bus riding privilege suspended, ranging from one day to the remainder of the school year, depending on the severity of the offense. A student will also be subject to disciplinary action for those violations within this code that are also covered by Policy 460 (Serious Misconduct). Less serious conduct will be dealt with by the school principal under the disciplinary authority given him by the North Carolina Statutes and by the Buncombe County Board of Education policies and regulations.

Passengers may be suspended from school or from riding on a bus, at the discretion of the principal, for:

1. Delaying the bus schedule.

2. Fighting, smoking, using profanity, or refusing to obey instructions of school authorities or of school bus driver while waiting for, riding, or leaving a school bus.

3. Being under the influence of or having in their possession alcoholic beverages or illegal drugs.

4. Tampering with or doing damage to a school bus.

5. Refusing to meet the bus on time at designated stops.

6. Unauthorized leaving the bus when in route from home to school or vice versa.

7. Playing, throwing objects, getting out of seat, or otherwise distracting the driver’s attention while the bus is in operation.
