Mrs. Allison Rhyne

I am very excited to be serving as the principal of Stanley Middle School and STEAM Academy!

I grew up on a small farm in Gaston County in a little town called Lucia.  I attended Pinewood Elementary, Mt. Holly Jr. High and graduated from East Gaston High School, go Warriors!  In 2003, I married my husband Steven and moved to Dallas, NC.  We have 2 sons, Solomon and Silas.  We also have 2 boxers named Willie and Georgia as well as a cat named Jelly.  We enjoy going to the beach, trips to the NC mountains, bass fishing, deer hunting and spending time with one another outdoors. 

I am currently in my 22nd year as an educator.  I began my career as a 5th grade teacher in 2003 at Costner Elementary School in Dallas, NC.  After 10 years in the classroom, I was named the Assistant Principal at John Chavis Middle School in Cherryville, NC.  After serving at JCMS for 3 years, I returned to Costner Elementary as the Assistant Principal for 2 years.  In 2018 I was named the principal at Lincolnton Middle School where I served for 6 years.   

I consider myself blessed to be part of such a great school community!  SMS is truly an amazing school and I am humbled by our outstanding educators, students and the entire Stanley community who have made this such a special place to work and learn. I look forward to serving the entire community as the Principal of SMS as we continue to support one another and grow together as we prepare students to be global leaders and lifelong learners!  Please let me know if you ever need anything.
