Michelle Sackman, Principal

Michelle Sackaman


I am honored to serve as the principal of Beaufort Elementary School.

I have been an educator for 26 years, with 22 of those years in Beaufort County. Prior to becoming an administrator, I served as a classroom and Gifted & Talented teacher and literacy coach at the elementary level. Each year has brought experiences, new learning and a renewed commitment to serving our students and teachers.

At Beaufort Elementary, I am privileged to work with an extraordinary group of students, families and staff. I look forward to working with you and to carrying on the many traditions of our school community.

Together we will soar to success!

Hello.  My name is Wendy Oels.  I am very excited to begin my second year as the Assistant Principal at Beaufort Elementary School.  I received my bachelor's degrees in Psychology and Elementary Education from Wilkes University.  I also earned my master's degree in School Administration from the American College of Education.    

Beaufort County has been my home residence and workplace for the past twenty years.  During these years, I have worked for the school district as a teacher, instructional numeracy coach, and Dean of Students.  When I'm not at school, you can find me enjoying quality family time with my son, Carson.
