Hello! I am Shane O'Neal and am honored to be the principal of Kernersville Elementary. I am a graduate of UNC - Chapel Hill and have been an educator since 1991. I taught elementary school for seventeen years before earning my master's degree in school administration from Appalachian State in 2009. I have been an assistant principal at both Old Richmond and Meadowlark Elementary schools. I cannot imagine doing anything other than surrounding myself with children and inspiring them to believe in themselves. I take my role as a school leader seriously and make decisions in the best interest of the students we serve at KES. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife, Gina, and son, Lucas, in the outdoors and cheering for the Tarheels!
My door is always open and I look forward to welcoming you into the KES family!
