Ms. Mickie Whitehead

This is my 27th year of teaching and my 8th year at New Bern High.  I graduated from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education.  I also earned my Master of Arts in Special Education from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona. I began my teaching career in Florida, where I taught for three years. In 1996, I moved to North Carolina and began teaching in the Nash-Rocky Mount Schools system.  I continued in that county while my children were in school.  Once they had both graduated from high school, I was able to look for a change.  When the opportunity arose to move to New Bern High School, I jumped at the chance and have enjoyed every day here!
