Principal Tim Albert

I am a native of Norfolk, Virginia, and graduated from Norview High School in Norfolk in 1972. I attended Virginia Wesleyan University and graduated in 1977 with a degree in History/Political Science with a secondary teaching certificate. I taught and coached in the Virginia Beach school system for 15 years, then became an administrator in the system until my retirement in 2007. I was an assistant principal at Salem Middle School and Ocean Lakes High School before becoming a principal at Landstown Middle School in 1997, where I served until my retirement from the Virginia Beach school system in 2007.

I began my career in Dare County Schools in the summer of 2007 as the assistant principal at First Flight Middle School. I was the AP at FFMS until 2014, when I became principal at FFMS. I became principal at FFHS in 2016.

I am married to my beautiful wife, T-Gay. We have four wonderful children and three beautiful grandchildren.

Assistant Principal Caroline Pearce

Assistant Principal Caroline Pearce

I have had, with very limited interruption, the incomparable, lifelong privilege of pursuing my passion to educate. I can honestly say that I am presently, have been since the age of 8, and will always be in love with teaching and lifelong learning! Since March of 1979 I have been employed by the Dare County Board of Education. I am thankful for the families in Dare County who have entrusted me with the care and education of their children and for the Dare County Schools’ staffs with whom I have worked that many times motivated me to be better than I thought I could ever be. The thousands of students whom I have loved, taught, advised, and coached have enriched my life immeasurably, and I will not, willingly, give up the memory of a single one! Miraculously, my personal family -- an exceptional husband, two extraordinary children, and four phenomenal grandchildren -- and my professional families and friends have understood and supported me throughout my very long career! Someone much wiser than Caroline Pearce has written that we all should "LIVE WELL, LAUGH OFTEN, AND LOVE MUCH." By the grace of God, I have done and hope to continue to do just that! My life, to the present time, truly could not have been any better, and I am hopeful that for many years to come I will continue to be a positive, enthusiastic influence in the lives of those with whom I come into contact.
