Mrs. Tammy Mims

Hello Hawk family! I am honored to serve as the principal at Hawks Nest STEAM Academy. 

I have been an educator for 27 years. I have had the privilege to serve as a high school science teacher, a district level curriculum facilitator for grades 6-12 science, director of the Gaston Regional Science and Engineering Fair, an assistant principal and a principal. I have loved every step of my career and I have had so many wonderful opportunities. I received both my Bachelor of Science in Biology (with a concentration in Microbiology) and Master of Science in Education from the University of South Carolina. I received my School Administration License from Western Carolina University. I am currently enrolled in the Educational Leadership Doctoral Program at Gardner Webb University. 

My husband, Tom, and I live in Mount Holly, NC and have been happily married for 30 years. Our son Christopher, is a graduate of The Highland School of Technology and The Citadel, Military College of South Carolina. Our daughter Charli, is a graduate of South Point High School and The College of Charleston. She is currently a second grade teacher at Robinson Elementary School. 

I enjoy reading, watching Sci-Fi, and hanging out with my family and our pets. I am a big fan of Wonder Woman!

I am so excited to be on this journey with you!
