School Starts JULY 25!
     North Graham Elementary
    Mrs. Cothren
    "Home of the Cardinals"
      My name is Nancy Cothren and I am the Principal of North Graham Elementary.  I have worked with the Alamance Burlington School System for 19 years.  During my career with ABSS, I worked as a teacher at Smith Elementary where I taught third and fourth grade. I have also worked as an academic coach for 7 years in a different county.  After attending UNCG as a Principal Fellow, I worked as an assistant principal at Garrett Elementary. In 2012 I moved to North Graham Elementary as the principal.  
     As the principal of North Graham, I have a passion for instructional excellence.  I love visiting classrooms to watch students interact in their learning environment.  I am always amazed by the progress students make as I observe the work that is posted throughout the building.  I am proud to announce that NGE will be an A+ School starting in 2015-16.  This will bring exciting arts integration into the classroom and to our community! 





  • Meet the teacher will be on July 21 from 5:00 to 7:00 P.M.  Classroom assignments will be shared using a Connect Ed phone call.  Be sure that we have a current phone number so that you will receive a special message from your future teacher on July 20.
