Ms. Dana Dougherty-Primiano, Principal

Hi!  I am Dana Dougherty-Primiano AKA Ms. P the proud principal of RES!  I was born in New York City and attended NYC public schools.  I attended St. John’s University and received my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.  I also received my master’s degree from the City University of New York in Elementary Education.  My desire to move into administration led me to go back to school again to earn my Sixth Year Certificate in Administration and Supervision from the City University of New York. 

I had the honor of being a middle school math teacher, and a 2nd- 5th-grade teacher during my teaching career.  I was also a teacher trainer for the UFT Teacher Center in NY. I later became an Assistant Principal in an elementary school.   Upon arriving in NC in 2005 I worked as an Assistant Principal and Instructional Resource Teacher at Fuller Elementary in Raleigh. 

My career at Rolesville began in 2009 when I became the Assistant Principal.  My love for my RES family and the community inspired me to become the principal of RES in November 2013.   

Rolesville is my second home and I love every minute of it!  When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my 2 kids Alyssa and Alex who are both RES grads!  They are both athletes who play softball and soccer and I enjoy spending my time watching them play.  When we are not at games, we enjoy time riding bikes.   The Rolesville community is one of the best places to work and be a part of and I hope I get to be a part of it for many years to come!  #RESSTRONG
