Mr. Eversole is very excited to be a part of Poplin Elementary. “I am very pleased to be allowed the opportunity to come to Poplin and use my talents to further the growth of these children both academically and socially. I want to push Poplin to greater expectations,” said Mr. Eversole. Becoming a vital role in the implementation of the new Common Core curriculum and fostering relationships with staff and students to help further everyone’s successes are goals Mr. Eversole has for this school year.
Mr. Eversole loves the beginning of school and this time of year. “I love football season. I have been a Panthers fan ever since moving to North Carolina,” said Mr. Eversole. Riding his Harley motorcycle and enjoying his dog named “Buckethead” are two things Mr. Eversole also likes to do when he is away from Poplin.
