Mr. Cumpston

Hello Families of New Bern High School!


My name is Andrew Cumpston, and I come to New Bern High School with 30 years of experience in the textile and tire-building manufacturing fields.  I am excited to share my experiences and give practical applications to the material that will be taught.  My classroom management style is based on respect.  We will have an opportunity at the beginning of the semester to work together on how to define this term, as well as how to establish rewards and consequences for the classroom.  Communication is key to the success of the relationships amongst the student, the teacher, and the parent/guardian relationship.  I will be requesting contact information to welcome open communication throughout the semester.

I consider this quote a guiding principal for my career in education; moreover, I have the privilege of teaching the next generation, and I get excited to imagine what the future can be. Inspiration, excitement, enthusiasm, and humor will be the building blocks used to teach the curriculum.
