Meet Our Principal

Meet Our Principal~ Charles Smith

Hello, I am Charles Smith, Principal of Rosewood Elementary. Welcome to our school.  I have proudly worked for Wayne County Public Schools for more than 28 years.  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 Class Dojo 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!
