My name is Angie Trantham and I am so excited and honored for the opportunity to serve as the Principal at Johnston Elementary School! I grew up in Western North Carolina and have been in education since 1996. I started my career with a BA in Elementary Education from Mars Hill College and began teaching Early Head Start and preschool, with Asheville City Schools. I soon continued my studies to obtain a Birth-Kindergarten Certification from Western Carolina University and also became a National Board Certified teacher. Eventually, I attended Appalachian State University and went on to receive a Masters in Birth-Kindergarten as well as a certification in School Administration. Over the course of my career, I have taught and served a variety of different roles in education including Exceptional Children’s Teacher/Coordinator, First Grade Teacher and Reading Interventionist. For the past 5 years, I have been the Assistant Principal of Estes Elementary. My husband and I have been married for 20 years and have two, active teenage boys who keep us very busy with sports.
I’m looking forward to the upcoming school year to serve and grow the dedicated staff, eager students and supportive community at Johnston Elementary School! Go Bears!!!
