Mr. Darrell Wells

Hello Patriots!  This is my fourth year at Harris Road Middle School and my 31st year overall.  I grew up in a military family and have lived in various places in the U.S. and overseas.  After my father retired from the military, we settled in Ohio.  I earned my Bachelor's Degree from Marshall University in 1992 and spent my first year teaching/coaching in Huntington, W.Va.  I moved to North Carolina in 1993 and taught at J.N. Fries Middle School.  I've had the honor of teaching at several schools in Cabarrus County and also coaching track & field at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.  I moved to Florida in 2005 and taught at Destin Middle School while also serving in the Navy Reserves at NAS Pensacola.  I returned to Cabarrus County Schools in 2008 and I'm looking forward to finishing my career with outstanding colleagues who have been great friends of mine over the years.  I very much enjoy teaching Social Studies as well as coaching football and track & field.  In my spare time, I enjoy working out, playing golf, camping at the beach and boating.  My wife, Elizabeth, is a former educator and currently works as a Financial Services Representative at Wells Fargo.
