I have been a Panda, a Viking, and I am super excited about now being a Baron!!! I have worked in the Gates County Schools System for over 20 years. I have taken on the roles of teacher assistant, coach, bus driver, teacher and now administrator. I value the students, staff and community that I now serve. The Exceptional Children of our community hold a huge piece of my heart. I am a firm believer in Rita Peirson's quote, "Every child deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can be." I am a proud graduate of College of the Albemarle, Elizabeth City State University and East Carolina University where I received my Masters of School Administration. I am eager to help those here at GCHS SOAR! #GOBARONS
Mrs. Susan Casper
I am excited to serve as assistant principal at Gates County High School and to work to make GCHS a wonderful, welcoming place where all build their foundation for success in future endeavors. I am a 1986 graduate of GCHS so my love for our school runs deep. I began my teaching career in 2001, teaching American History, Civics, Street Law, and Geography in the social studies department. After sixteen years in the classroom, I joined an administrative team dedicated to academic and personal growth for all learners. I believe it is our responsibility to help students set high goals and expectations for themselves and then to help them achieve their aspirations. I believe that each student deserves an adult advocate and my office door is open to all in order to be that supporter.
