Assistant Principal

Hello, My name is Derrell Ward and I am the Assistant Principal at Vanceboro Farm Life Elementary School. I have been a passionate educator for the past ten years and I love children! Ten years ago I started as a substitute and later became a Teacher Assistant (TA) and CTE Teacher for Pitt County Schools. I was the TA of the year in 2014 and the Teacher of the Year for 2021 in Pitt County. In my ten years, I have served as an advisor, mentor, department chair, and more as an educator. In addition, I am a father of three children and husband of one lovely wife. I am excited to start my 3rd year here at VFL and looking forward to building relationships with students, staff, and families.   If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to me.
