Mr. Robert Bales


Thank you for visiting my profile. This is my 10th year here at McDougle Middle. I absolutely love the school community, the teachers, and especially our students. Prior to being the Principal and previously Assistant Principal, I worked as an Assistant Principal at Chapel Hill High and a Math Teacher at Culbreth Middle. Currently, I am in the final year of my doctoral work at Western Carolina University. My disquisition is titled “The Culturally Responsive Beginning Teacher: Reimagining Onboarding Through a Lens of Equity and Social Justice.” I take my role as the leader of McDougle seriously, especially when helping students build their own social justice lens.

We have built an outstanding learning community here at McDougle where we think critically about how the world impacts our students and how our students can impact the world. We work hard and have fun while doing it. If you ever need to discuss something, please do not hesitate to reach out via email, phone, text, etc. We need to work together to ensure your child has the best possible experience during their time at McDougle.
