Mrs. Cathy LaClair

Over the past 22 years, I have worked for Onslow County Schools in a number of schools and positions.  My teaching experience includes having served in various positions in special education at the elementary school, middle school, and high school levels.  I also served as an Assistant Principal at Stateside Elementary and Dixon Middle School from 2009 - 2015. My return to teaching from the administrative side was long overdue as I realized that teaching is my true passion. For the past 3 years, I have been co-teaching in math and English at the high school level. I am very excited this year to embark on my first experience as a teacher with the Onslow County Virtual School. Being able to see students, who were not previously successful, take ownership and grow in their learning is what brings me joy.  I am married and have two adult sons. They both graduated as students from the Onslow County School system. Family is an important part of my life and I am blessed to have most of my immediate family living in the Onslow County area. I enjoy working in partnership with the administration, teachers, parents and gaurdians, and students. Please do not hesitate to contact me for any assistance or help you may need.  


Looking forward to the opportunity to Connect, Learn, and Lead with OVS this school year.
