Hello, I am Nala Sadler-Sherrill and I am thrilled to be the Principal at Northview Middle School. I am a native of Gastonia and have served in education for 11 years. Eight of those eleven years, I was a middle school Language Arts teacher and a high school English teacher for half a year in Gaston County. After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a Master’s Degree in School Administration (2015), I was given the opportunity to join Hickory Public Schools as an Assistant Principal and then, Interim Principal at Hickory Career and Arts Magnet (HCAM) for the last two and a half years.

During my short time as Interim Principal at HCAM, the graduation rate increased from 84.6% in 2016 to 87.5% in 2017 and overall proficiency increased in Biology and Math I EOCs.

Personally, I am married to Joseph Sherrill, native of Gastonia. We have two fantastic children. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, laughing, swimming, and traveling.

As we move into the upcoming school year, I look forward to building relationships while establishing and continuing sound instructional practices at Northview. I love everything about middle school from the development stage of students, to the supportive parents, energetic teachers, and exciting curriculum. Middle school is a time of change and growth for all students. I am excited to be able to help students take the steps which will lead them to become independent and successful young people.

Go Hawks!!
