Mr. Chris Davis - Principal
Ext. 102

I began my career in education as a social studies teacher in Edenton-Chowan Schools. I later moved to Carteret County, where I continued teaching social studies at Croatan. I hold a bachelor's degree from East Carolina University and a master's from UNC Wilmington. 

Later, I moved into administration, assuming the role of Assistant Principal at Croatan for three years. In the 22-23 school year, I moved to East Carteret.

I was appointed as Principal of Croatan in May of 2023. Returning to this esteemed institution, I am excited about the opportunity to serve and lead this community. I am excited to continue Croatan's culture of excellence, where exceeding expectations is not just a goal, but a way of life.

I am happily married to my wife, Katie, who was also a social studies teacher, and we have two sons, Chandler and Cal. You will probably see them running around the field or gym, cheering on the Cougars. 

My unwavering commitment to fostering excellence, providing a nurturing environment, and empowering students to exceed their expectations help me feel even more at home in Carteret County and I am excited to embrace the challenges and opportunities that await at Croatan.

I have wanted to work in education for as long as I can remember. I attended UNC-Wilmington as a Teaching Fellow and graduated with degrees in both English and Secondary Education. I spent the next 8 years teaching English and AP Literature in various classrooms across Eastern North Carolina. I started in New Hanover County at Laney High School as a long-term sub, taught four years at Northside High School in Beaufort County, one year at Washington High School (my alma mater!), and then settled with my husband in Craven County where I taught for three years at Havelock High School while completing my Masters in School Administration at East Carolina University. 


Last year I served as the Assistant Principal of West Craven Middle School and am SO thrilled to make the jump back to the world of high school in my new position at Croatan. I am excited to work alongside a phenomenal admin team, excellent teachers, driven students, and an involved community; I look forward to this year very much! 


My husband Zach is a Marine Biologist and serves as the State's Aquaculture Permit Coordinator for DMF in Morehead City. We are passionate about all things salt water, as is our son Theodore. I also enjoy volunteer opportunities, yoga, and restoring furniture in whatever time not spent on the water or cheering on the Cougars.
