Mr. Nicholas Lord – Assistant Principal
Thank you for taking the time to read my biography. To begin, I will start with my moving to Charlotte in 2007. After graduating from SUNY Fredonia (south of Buffalo, NY), I began my teaching career at Eastway Middle School in Charlotte. I taught 6-8thgrade science there for two years. I then continued teaching at Mint Hill Middle School, where I taught 7th and 8th grade. I very much enjoyed my time as a teacher; however, I felt that I wanted to have a larger impact on students and the school as a whole. To do this, I went to The University of South Carolina for my graduate degree in Educational Administration. I joined the administrative team as a Dean of Students at Lebanon Road Elementary School in 2013. In 2014, I joined Concord Middle as an Assistant Principal and have loved it. I feel that I am a part of the family. I am currently the 8th-grade administrator, and my primary responsibilities include overseeing the transportation and student schedules. I currently live in Harrisburg with my wonderful wife, son, and daughter. I am looking forward to a wonderful year here at Concord Middle School. Let’s Go Miners!! #minerpride
Mrs. Annessia Lee – Assistant Principal
Hello Miner Family!! I am excited to be your Assistant Principal at Concord Middle School. I am a native of Concord, NC and a former student of Cabarrus County Schools, from elementary to high school. I received my undergraduate degree in Communication Studies followed by a Masters in Elementary Education in 2009, both from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
I began my educational career in 2010 teaching 1st grade in Columbia South Carolina and joined Cabarrus County Schools in 2013 as a 2nd grade teacher at W.M. Irvin Elementary. After being in the classroom for several years, I decided to take my teaching career outside of the classroom, into a leadership role. I attended Queens University and received my 2nd Masters in Educational Leadership. After earning my degree, I became Irvin’s Behavior Coach for 3 years. In August of 2020, I joined the WR Odell Primary family as their Dean of Students.
I have a wonderful husband, Brooks and two children Tristan and Emeri. During my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, exercising, and traveling. I am honored to be a part of the Concord Middle School family and I look forward to continuing the success of all students and their families.
It is not what is poured into a student that counts, but what is planted.
