Ms. Anne Marie Adkins, Principal

In 1990 I earned my undergraduate degree from Bradley University, and in 1997 I completed my master's degree, also at Bradley University in Peoria, IL. Growing up in central Illinois, I watched my father's passion working with high school and college students as a teacher and coach. This led me to understand why I could not imagine doing anything other than positively impacting students of all ages as my life long mission/career. For the first 17 years in education, I had the pleasure of teaching in the classroom in Peoria, IL; Tampa, FL; and Cary, NC. When I became an administrator, I was an AP in WCPSS for 2 1/2 years and then became the principal at Yates Mill Elementary for 4 years. In January of 2015, I had the honor of becoming the principal at West Lake Middle School. Working at WLMS and with our students is one of the most rewarding experiences of my career. When I am not at school, I enjoy exercising, shopping, and spending time with my family.

I earned my bachelor's degree at Bowling Green State University and my master's degree at NC State University. This is my third year here at West Lake Middle School. Previously, I taught 8th grade science at Holly Grove MS for 5 years and at Reedy Creek MS for 5 years. I’m very excited about helping all students reach their goals and understand what it takes to achieve those goals. In my free time I love spending time with my wife and rooting for my native home sports teams (Browns, Indians, and Cavs). When I grow up I want to be a superhero.

I am excited to serve as an assistant principal at West Lake middle school! My goal is to support teachers in creating a high quality educational environment for our students.  I look forward to getting to know all of the West Lake students and their families.

This will be my 13th year in education.  My experience has been in social studies at both the middle and high school level as well as many other extra-curricular and coaching responsibilities.  I graduated with a degree in History and Education from the University of Mount Union in Alliance, OH.  After teaching for 9 years, I completed my Masters in School Administration at Western Carolina University.

I am a huge sports fan and particularly enjoy football (Ohio State Buckeyes, of course)! In addition to that, I love adventures with my wife and three young kids.

This is my first year in an Assistant Principal role and I’m so excited to be at West lake Middle School!  Before coming to WLMS, I was an Administrative Intern at Green Hope High School.  I have also taught orchestra at East Millbrook and Davis Drive Middle since 2003.  I am a classically trained violinist, and I love to play in my spare time.  I have two degrees from UNC-CH (Go, Tar Heels!) in violin performance and teaching.  I recently graduated with my second Masters degree in School Administration from NC State.  When I’m not at school, I enjoy chasing my 2-year-old son, Evan, around.
