Meet the Assistant Principal

Carla Shipman, Assistant Principal



 I have worked in Buncombe County Schools my entire educational career. I began working as a Title I Assistant in 2000 at West Buncombe Elementary. After graduating from Mars Hill College in 2003, I began teaching here at Candler Elementary. While at Candler, I obtained my National Board Certification and an MA in Educational Leadership from Western Carolina University. I have also worked as a Title I Reading Specialist and BCS Instructional Coach. I am looking forward to serving the Erwin community and the Enka community as Assistant Principal at Candler and Emma Elementary.

On a personal note, my husband and I have two boys that we adore. We are active members in the Erwin Community, where I have lived my entire life.

As I work daily, I strive to fulfill my personal mission statement, “Every student, every day with all my heart!”. Thank you for sharing your children with us! Please feel free to contact me
