• Welcome to Mr. Cone’s Class


    Mr. Wesley Cone

    This is my 10th year teaching English, and my third year at ABEC.


    I am a Jack of All Trades, Master of Writing Composition. My wife (Sarah) and I moved here in August 2016, from Clinton, NC, with our daughter Zoe. I am excited to be back and am thoroughly enjoying the Early College community so far. We have great students, great parents, and a great staff.


    I enjoy most things: sports, movies, board games, video games, and anything else that allows me to build relationships with people. My life motto: “Life is relationship.” I love and respect the people that have been brought into my life and aspire to help them in their journey toward their calling in life.


    In our approach to English, we will be focusing on the state standards for the English curriculum. Jenny Fisher, Dana Thames, and I will be teaching English classes. It is important to note that we are different teachers with unique teaching styles. We will all three cover all the standards. However, we may utilize different texts and/or types of projects to accomplish this goal. Each group of students is unique, and a one size fits all approach is not always the best approach for educational purposes.


    I greatly appreciate any and all communication that will help me better serve you this year. Feel free to e-mail me at gary_cone@abss.k12.nc.us.
