  • Troy Peuler, Principal - tpeuler@wcpss.net

    My name is Troy Peuler and I am the proud principal of Vance Elementary School.  I was born and raised in Michigan but have lived in the "Great State" of North Carolina for the past twenty years.  I have been married 23 years to my wonderful wife Mary and we have one adorable son named Tyler who graduated from Vance Elementary School last year. 

    Our family loves to travel and be outdoors.  We like to swim, hike and golf during our spare time.  We are blessed to be a part of Vance Elementary School and the wonderful school community that exists here.  I am proud of our staff, students and parents as they have created a remarkable place to learn each day.   I look forward to the years ahead at Vance.


    Vicki Wood, Assistant Principal - vwood@wcpss.net

    My name is Vicki Wood, and I am honored to serve as the Assistant Principal of Vance Elementary. After serving as a fourth and first grade teacher, instructional resource teacher and AIG teacher, I went back to school and earned a Masters in Administration from ECU.  Go PIRATES~ I have served the Vance community for 7 years and have enjoyed every minute. We have a strong, supportive school community and by working together we provide a meaningful, rigorous, and engaging education for all of our learners. 

    When not ensuring all staff members, parents, and students are set-up, and prepared for success, I enjoy shopping, trips to the beach, and spending time with my husband and two daughters. 

    I look forward to continuing to support the Vance Community with effectively communicating, and collaborating to best meet the needs of every child.
