Wilson County Schools

by Wilson Rotary

My name is Amy High. I am a Wilson County native.
I was inspired to become a teacher by my experience as a student in Wilson County Schools.
I attended Atlantic Christian College where I received a BS degree in Elementary Education. I was employed by Wilson County Schools as an elementary teacher at Vinson-Bynum Elementary School. I continued teaching for eight years.
I attended East Carolina University where I received a Master’s Degree in School Counseling. I was hired as the School Counselor at Vinson-Bynum Elementary School where I worked with students and their families until I retired in 2010.
I always had a passion for working with families. I was hired by the Mediation Center of Eastern Carolina in 2010. I worked with at risk youth and their families for three years before returning to Wilson County Schools in 2013.
In 2013 I returned to Wilson County Schools as the McKinney-Vento Liaison. I work with students, staff, and families to ensure that we are in compliance with the McKinney-Vento Act and students are receiving appropriate services. I work with our homeless families encouraging parents to be involved in their children’s education and in develop a plan to overcome homelessness.
