He has since served as the Assistant Principal (AP) at Georgie Tyler Middle School and Smithfield High School, and Principal at Westside Elementary.

Kristy Buggs has been named the new principal of Smithfield Middle School (SMS). Buggs has 12 years of teaching experience, including positions with Suffolk Public Schools, State College, PA and Isle of Wight County Schools. She served as the Assistant Principal at Windsor Elementary School and Carrollton Elementary School before being named Principal of Georgie Tyler Middle in 2020.

Dawn Carroll will join Georgie Tyler Middle School as the Interim Principal.   Carroll has been with Isle of Wight County Schools since 1996 as an English and Reading intervention teacher at both Windsor Middle and Windsor High School.  She served as an Instructional Coach at Carrsville Elementary, followed by Assistant Principal of Carrollton Elementary and, most recently, Assistant Principal of Windsor High.
