 My name is James Tolbert. I am a native West Virginian who relocated with my wife and our five rescue dogs to North Carolina in June 2018. I presently teach English I, English I Honors, and AVID at Havelock High School. I also coach cross-country and serve as Assistant Varsity Coach in baseball. This is my thirteenth year as a high-school educator. I graduated from Concord University in Athens, WV in 1994 with a B.S.Ed. in Education/Language Arts 5-12. I completed my Master’s in Education/Social Studies in 2008. I am presently dual-certified in Social Studies and Language Arts. Prior to teaching, I worked for eleven years as a paramedic.
