Greetings! My name is Drew Sawyer. I have the wonderful privilege of serving as the principal of First Flight Elementary School. This is my 20th year as a proud North Carolina Public School Educator. I have known I wanted to teach since I was in the 5th grade, and my commitment has never wavered. Teaching and learning are,and always will be my passion. Outside of school, I am a father and a husband that enjoys cooking, fishing, and being outside. The most vital role I play at First Flight Elementary School is developing positive, meaningful relationships with students, teachers, and families. If you would ever like to meet me, sit down and talk, or just have a conversation over the phone, I invite you to do so.
Hi! I'm Jodie Mitchum, assistant principal at First Flight Elementary School. I have been in education for over 25 years, 20 of which were in the classroom. My first love is learning and helping others learn and grow in all areas of their lives. I also love reading, working in my yard, and long power walks. As a school leader, my door is always open to parents, students, and teachers alike, so please feel free to drop in and introduce yourself.
