Mr. Michael Hewitt

My name is Michael Hewitt. I was born and raised in Trenton, NJ and later moved to Wilmington, NC at the age of fifteen. I graduated from Laney High School and later attended Winston-Salem State University. Shortly after college, I married my college sweetheart and we moved to Chicago, IL. We have one son and he loves to play and watch basketball. I started my teaching career in the south suburbs of Chicago as a 6th grade teacher and just before moving back to NC, I have been a Physical Education teacher for the past thirteen years! I enjoy coaching girls and boys basketball, track, and I love to bowl. Gastonia has blessed me with my first opportunity to serve as an administrator and I am very proud to be a member of Cramerton Middle School. Go Eagles!
