I am so honored to be entering my 6th year as principal of Carrboro High School! Our staff’s commitment to do whatever it takes for students is unmatched. Our students have a passion for learning that for many includes social justice work, while our larger community of parents and families not only support their own students but have shown an amazing commitment to all students and especially to our staff.
I am confident in CHS’s ability to meet the continued challenges from the past several school years. Academically, we are prepared to address student learning gaps and accelerate learning. From a social-emotional learning aspect, our Real Talk meetings will continue to support students’ needs. Sports, clubs, and other events will help students re-engage with school in a more normal fashion. Our Flex Time, entering its second year, will hone in on further support students’ academic needs.
For those that don’t know me, I am a North Carolina native from Asheville and have served in NC public schools for twenty-four years. After earning my degree in English from UNC Asheville (Go Bulldogs!), I spent eight years in the classroom as a middle grades English language arts teacher before entering school administration. Upon matriculating from UNC Chapel Hill (Go Heels!) with a Masters of School Administration in 2007, I began my career as an assistant principal at East Chapel Hill High School. In 2011, I became the principal of Grey Culbreth Middle School, the major feeder school for Carrboro High, of which I became principal in 2017. In June 2021 I earned my doctoral degree in Educational Administration and Supervision from the University of Virginia (Wahoowa!). Here is a link to my dissertation about increasing the Advanced Placement enrollment of Black and Latinx students, if you are interested.
My educational goals have remained pretty much the same over these 24 years while also deepening:
- Creating life-learners;
- Helping every student become the best version of themselves;
- Working to eliminate systematic racism by dealing with my own and others’ white privilege honestly and openingly;
- Undergirding my work with Love being the only thing in the end that matters.
Here’s to a great 22-23 school year!

Hi everyone! I was born and raised in Costa Rica, a country with no military forces. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in English and another one in Education from Universidad de Costa Rica (UCR). I worked in public and private schools as an English as a Foreign Language, English Grammar, and British/American Literature teacher. I accepted a job with Lee County Schools in NC and moved to the US in 1999 as part of an exchange program. I taught English as a Second Language and sheltered English I in multiple schools from elementary to high school, and later became ESL Coordinator for Lee County. I also managed the migrant database, and did all official interpreting and translating for the district. During this time, I completed the Master's in School Administration program with UNC Chapel Hill, and was hired as assistant principal in Chatham County, first at Virginia Cross Elementary, and later at Jordan-Matthews High School. After six years in Chatham, I was offered an assistant principalship in Chapel Hill High School in 2015, then transferred to East Chapel Hill High School, and finally made it to Carrboro High School. This year I will serve as associate principal for the newcomer center.
I have two adult children, Carlos and Daniela, who powered me through this journey as immigrants, and I enjoy a simple life in Pittsboro with my partner, Bob, our three dogs: Lalo, Mango and Lobo, and Willie Nelson, the cat.
Hola a todos. Nací y me criaron en Costa Rica, un país sin ejército. Me gradué de la Universidad de Costa Rica (UCR) con un título en Inglés y otro en Educación. Trabajé en escuelas públicas y privadas como profesora de Inglés como Idioma Extranjero, profesora de Gramática y profesora de Literatura Británica y Americana. Acepté una oferta de trabajo en Lee County en NC por medio de una agencia de intercambio y me mudé a los Estados Unidos en 1999. En Lee County trabajé como profesora de inglés como segundo idioma y también inglés I para inmigrantes en varias escuelas desde la primaria hasta la secundaria. Luego avancé a la posición de coordinadora del programa ESL, y también estuve a cargo de administrar la base de datos del programa para estudiantes en condición migratoria, y todas las traducciones oficiales del distrito. Durante este tiempo completé el programa de Master en Administración Educativa de la Universidad de Carolina del Norte en Chapel Hill y me ofrecieron la posición de subdirectora en Chatham County, primero en Virginia Cross Elementary y luego en Jordan-Matthews High School. Después de trabajar en Chatham por seis años, me ofrecieron la posición de subdirectora en Chapel Hill High School en el 2015, luego me transferí a East Chapel Hill High School, y finalmente llegué a Carrboro High School. Este año serviré bajo el título directora del centro para estudiantes recién llegados. Tengo dos hijos adultos, Carlos y Daniela, quienes han navegado conmigo este viaje como inmigrantes, y vivo una vida simple en Pittsboro con mi compañero, Bob, nuestros tres perros: Lalo, Mango y Lobo, y Willie Nelson, el gato.

Mr. Diego Mureño
Mi nombre es Diego Mureño. It is an honor to be Assistant Principal at Carrboro High School. Ever since my arrival, the Carrboro community has embraced me with open arms. Last year certainly had its ups and downs, but I never lost faith in our people. I am excited for what this school year will bring our way!
At heart I am a “Mountain Boy”- although I was born in Los Angeles, California. My parents relocated the family to Marion, North Carolina (just get on I-40 West for 3 hours and you’ll be there) for a quieter, slower pace. I graduated from McDowell High School and continued my education at Lenoir-Rhyne University, where I was a North Carolina Teaching Fellow. After college, I stayed in Hickory, North Carolina and worked for Newton-Conover City Schools. My previous titles include 6th grade English Language Arts/Social Studies teacher, Administrative Intern, 2nd grade Dual Immersion teacher, and 5th grade Dual Immersion teacher. While teaching, I also graduated with two masters degrees- one in Online Teaching and Instructional Design (Lenoir-Rhyne University) and another in Educational Leadership (High Point University). Currently, I am in my first year as a doctoral student at UNC-Greensboro.
When not at work or writing papers, you can usually find me at CrossFit or taking a walk around Franklin Street. Please do not hesitate to contact me at any point. See y’all around- Go Jags!
