Mr. Patrick Watson

Hello!  I am Patrick Watson, and I am excited to be assistant principal at Bessemer City Central. I am in my eighth year as Assistant Principal in Gaston County and in my third year as Assistant Principal of Bessemer City Central.

My Educational Philosophy 
Every child deserves an opportunity to realize his or her greatest potential in today’s school. Teachers and school administrators working as a team can create a school culture that truly promotes continuous learning for both students and adults.  The culture should make it clear to everyone visiting the school that “learning matters at this school.”
