Previously, Ms. Bare has been an Assistant Principal of Sycamore High School and a High School Social Studies Teacher with Sycamore Community Schools, New Hanover County Schools, Rose Local Schools, and Fairfield City Schools.
Upon the appointment of Wyoming High School Principal Dr. Ashley Whitely to Assistant Superintendent, the position of Wyoming High School Principal was posted and an interview committee was assembled.

“To ensure we have the best possible permanent candidate for this important role, we will be conducting a wider search and re-posting the open position in November,” said Superintendent Dr. Susan Lang.
