Ms. Anne Marie Adkins, Principal

It is exciting to be entering my 5th school year as the proud principal of West Lake Middle School. I am honored to lead an extradorinary community and have been so impressed with the work of all stakeholders to #BeTheOne and #BeTheDifference for EVERY student! I

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, watching reality TV shows, and spending time with my family.

I received my bachelors degree from North Carolina Central University majoring in  Middle Grades Education with a concentration in Science and Social studies. I taught both subjects at East Wake Middle School for several years before embarking on a path that would allow me to play a larger role in students’ educational journey.

I returned to North Carolina Central University to earn my Masters in School Administration as a North Carolina Principal Fellow and graduated in 2019. I served as an intern Assistant Principal at East Wake High School and Wendell Elementary School. I am delighted to now serve as an Assistant Principal at West Lake Middle School. I look forward to  working with our wonderful children, teachers, parents and community members to help our students succeed and become the best version of themselves.

Outside of school, I love to spend quality time with my family attending theatrical productions, cooking, doing arts and crafts, traveling, and playing video games with my youngest daughter.

This is my third 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-Chapel Hill (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 3-year-old son, Evan, around.

Mr. Tom Reed, 7th Grade Assistant Principal

I graduated from Central Michigan University in 2006 with a degree in Elementary Education.  Shortly after graduating from college, I moved to North Carolina and began my teaching career in Franklin County.  I taught 5th grade for four years at Bunn Elementary School.  I spent the following two years teaching at Clyde Erwin Elementary Magnet School in Onslow County.  I taught a variety of 2nd-5th grade classes at Marion Law Academy in Detroit, Michigan prior to coming back to North Carolina in the fall of 2015.  I have spent the past three school years teaching 3rd grade at Barwell Road Elementary in southeast Raleigh and working on my Masters in School Administration. I am looking forward to being an integral part of the Wildcat family and having the opportunity to work with the students, parents, and staff at West Lake Middle School. My favorite thing to do outside of school is anything with Brady, my son (fishing, camping, playing sports, video games, etc).  Pizza is without a doubt my favorite food.  My favorite sport is hockey...I played for close to 16 years.  I am a fan of both the Carolina Hurricanes and the Detroit Red Wings.  I enjoy rooting for the Detroit Lions; however, I am a huge fan of Michigan Wolverines football.
