Hello and welcome to Rosewood Elementary! I am Charles Smith and this year is my seventh year as Principal of Rosewood Elementary. I have proudly been in education for twenty-seven years with Wayne County Public Schools. After graduating from Rosewood High School and East Carolina University, I began my teaching career in History at the high school level where I also coached various sports including boys’ varsity basketball and football at Charles B. Aycock. Prior to my current principal ship, I received my Masters of Administration Degree from Scranton University and served Wayne County as an Assistant Principal at Eastern Wayne Middle School and Northwest Elementary School. My wife and I reside in the Rosewood community, along with our three children. In my free time, I enjoy fishing at the coast, running and quality family time. There is no place like home and Rosewood will always be home to me!
I encourage you to be involved in your child's learning. Visiting the classroom, volunteering, and joining our PTO are just a few suggestions to get involved. Follow what's going on in our school through ClassDojo and teacher/parent communication. Rosewood Elementary is a great place to learn and work. Come be a part of the parent, student, teacher/staff team!
