I am originally from Cleveland, Ohio where I spent the first 28 years of my life.  After moving out West I settled in the Charlotte area and knew this was where I wanted to be.  I was a fifth grade teacher  as well as Assistant Principal in Cabarrus County,  Topsail Island and for have been the Assistant Principal at Beverly Woods, Hornets’ Nest, Whitewater Academy and now Hidden Valley.  I have three beautiful children and a gorgeous wife who teaches first grade at Hickory Grove Christian School in Charlotte.

Greetings Hidden Valley

Elementary Family,


My name is Garrett Nash and I am extremely excited and honored to join the Hidden Valley staff as assistant principal! I was born and raised in Charlotte and I am a proud graduate of Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools. Hidden Valley holds a special place in my heart and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work together with you to ensure the academic success of every student by making student-centered decisions and providing a safe and secure environment.


This school year will be my 22nd year working in CMS. I received my undergraduate degree in Political Science from Winston-Salem State University. I started as a teacher assistant in the special education program at Long Creek Elementary. After two years at Long Creek I received a masters degree in Special Education from UNCC and began teaching SBS (Specialized Behavior Support) at Derita Elementary and Reid Park Academy for the next 15 years. For the past 4 years I have served as the Dean of Students/Instruction at Nathaniel Alexander Elementary and I received a masters degree in Educational Leadership from Winthrop University in 2013. I am married and have two children, and I love sports, seafood, and traveling. I look forward to meeting you and working together to achieve success at Hidden Valley Elementary. I am excited about getting the school year off to a great start!
