Dr. Eleanor B. Patrick

I am excited to continue in my fourth year as the principal of ORA!  This year is going to be an amazing year!  We've worked extremely hard over the summer in order to ensure that we are able to provide our students with the absolute best in learning, teaching, and leadership!  

Educational Background
In December of 2002, I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from East Carolina University with a concentration in Psychology. That same year I also obtained my K-12 Reading Certification. In 2010, I earned a Masters of School Administration degree from ECU. In 2014, I completed the doctoral program in Educational Leadership and Administration at UNC-Wilmington. I continuously strive to be informed, proactive, and reflective for the benefit of all children, particularly the students of eastern North Carolina.

On a personal note...
Although I have not lived in North Carolina for my entire life, I consider myself to be a native of eastern North Carolina. I have lived here nearly all of my life and I love it! From an early age, my parents taught me respect, Christian values, to care for others, and to always believe in myself. My parents instilled in me a love of learning and the value of hard work.

I have been married to my husband (Ervin) for twelve years. We have an adorable littlie boy (Bryan).  We also spend a great deal of time with our nephew (Jaden) and our niece (Kayla). In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family in Vanceboro, reading, and traveling!
