Dear Winding Springs Families, community
members, and community partners,
I am beyond excited to have the awesome
opportunity to serve as the Principal of the AMAZING Winding Springs
Elementary School. It is a great honor and privilege to work in such a great
community. I am extremely committed to working collaboratively with you,
your children, community members, faith-based partners, community partners, and
our talented staff to create the BEST experience for every family
that chooses Winding Springs Elementary.
I truly believe that
if it takes a “village to raise a child” then it takes a “community to raise a
school”! I am passionate about building genuine relationships that will allow
us to create an environment that is focused on high academic achievement and
the social- emotional well-being of EVERY child.
This is my 20th
year in education. I earned my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education
from Belmont Abbey College in Belmont, NC. I earned a master’s degree from
Pfeiffer University, as well as a Doctorate in K-12 Educational Leadership from Capella University. I have had the opportunity to work as a teacher, Dean of
Students, and Assistant Principal at the elementary, middle, and K-8 levels within
the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools district.
I have been married
to my wife, Dana, for 16 years and we have two boys, Nathan (11 years old) and
Luke (8 years old). I enjoy sports, cooking, traveling, and spending time with
my family and friends. I cannot wait to get to know all of you.
Please feel free to contact me if you have
questions, concerns, or suggestions by calling me at 980-343-5140 or sending an
email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for choosing Charlotte-Mecklenburg
Schools and Winding Springs Elementary School.
Dr. Matthew Slota
