Lauren Evans, Principal - Asheville Primary

My name is Lauren Evans and I am overjoyed to be joining Asheville Primary as the Principal.  I deeply believe in the power of public education and the importance of establishing a strong partnership between a school and the community it serves.  I am committed to ensuring that all children are socially, emotionally, and academically successful.  I believe that children should be valued above all else, and I promise to make all of my decisions with their best interests in mind.  I look forward to working alongside the exceptional Primary staff members. I believe we will continue to create an engaging learning environment and to bring our students the outstanding and rigorous educational experience they deserve. 

I began my teaching career in Washington, DC as a special education teacher.  After moving to NC, I had the pleasure of teaching for four years at Isaac Dickson Elementary.  Most recently, I was Assistant Principal at Vance Elementary. Prior to that I was the Director of Curriculum for a secondary school in Charlotte.  My educational experience includes a Bachelor's Degree in English with a concentration in creative writing from University of Maryland, College Park, and a Master's Degree in Education with a concentration in learning disabilities from American University.  In addition, I obtained my second Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Queens University. 

Outside of school, I am the proud partner to an early childhood educator.  We have twin boys who love superheroes, football, and singing.  I am also an avid Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner.  I love Asheville and I look forward to raising my children in the community that I serve.

 Please do not hesitate to contact me to share a concern, celebrate a success, give a suggestion, or just say hello!
