Mrs. Alie Styons
I was born in Pennsylvania but have spent most of my life living in North Carolina. My dad was in the Marine Corps, so we lived a few other places while I was growing up, mainly Virginia and Hawaii. I graduated from Southwest High School and decided to go to college in Tennessee. I obtained my BA from Freed-Hardeman University in History and Secondary Education.
After I graduated, I moved back to North Carolina and began my teaching career at Swansboro Middle School where I taught Eighth Grade Social Studies and AVID for eighteen years. In 2015 I decided to get my Master’s degree in School Administration from East Carolina University.
The following year, I moved to Scotland and married my husband, John. I have been living right outside of Edinburgh for the last two years. I have absolutely loved living in the UK, with one big exception, I am so far away from my family. We have decided to move back to North Carolina as the weather in the UK is a bit dreary, and I missed my home.
On a personal note, I cannot wait to begin the new school year at OECHS. I am looking forward to a fantastic year with an amazing faculty and even more amazing students.
