Mrs. Catherine Alligood

I am excited about beginning my seventh year as principal of Bangert Elementary. My family and I have lived in Trent Woods for 29 years, and we have loved it here.  My husband, Dwayne, and I have two daughters, both of whom are products of Craven County Schools.  They both now live in Raleigh.  Before becoming an administrator, I was a science teacher.  I have taught at Pamlico County High School, Carroll Middle School in Wake County, and at Trent Park Elementary here in Craven County.  I served as a STEM Project Manager for Craven County Schools, and prior to coming to Bangert I was the Assistant Principal at Ben D. Quinn Elementary.  

Bangert is a wonderful neighborhood school, and this year we will continue the many fabulous traditions that make Bangert a top school.  At Bangert we value our partnership with the Trent Woods community, and we know that our many partnerships make us stronger.  Our goal is to give every student a complete education. At Bangert we take very seriously our motto, “Experiencing Success…  Everyone, Every Day!”  We see success all around us, and we take joy in celebrating it.  Come join us!

Please contact me if you have questions or concerns.  I will be very happy to talk with you.
