Hello Vance Panthers!


My name is Troy Peuler and I am so excited to introduce myself as the new principal of Vance Elementary School.  For the past 23 years I have worked to ensure the success of each student that I have been fortunate enough to educate.  I have led Vandora Springs Elementary School in Garner for the past seventeen years and look forward to working with all of you at Vance Elementary School.


I have been married to my wife Mary for twenty years and we have one son (Tyler).  I am happy to say that this will be more than just a transition for me as we look forward to Tyler joining the “Panther Nation” as well.  He is nine years old and in fourth grade.  I am honored to have been selected to join Vance Elementary and look forward to the great tradition that has been established over the years.


I am a student/child oriented educator that is looking to provide a caring and nurturing learning environment for all students.  My goal is to ensure that each child is safe, happy and working to their potential in a wonderful education setting.  I believe in positive collaboration among staff, parents and students.  We are not only working together to provide the best for our students, but to build upon the great community of Garner.  Having been in the Garner area for so long, I am aware of the great traditions and academic excellence that have been established at Vance Elementary. 


I am absolutely honored to have been selected to join Vance Elementary School and look forward to adding to the wonderful tradition and doing “Great” things together.  I am so excited to start our journey together!  I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you and move forward as a team.
