  • The Rockets welcome...Wayne Bruton!

     Mr. Wayne Bruton- Student Teacher

    Wayne Bruton is originally from southern California and moved to North Carolina with my family when I was in the fifth grade. 

    This spring he will be completing his 2nd semester internship at East Lee Middle School with Mr. Toth as part of my graduation requirements for East Carolina University and North Carolina licensure requirements. He will graduate from ECU on May 8th of this year with a degree in Special Education and will continue with his coursework through the end of June for his reading add-on.

    During the past three years he has been working as a teacher’s assistant while completing practicum assignments and as an Intern at Greenwood Elementary School in the special education department. He has enjoyed his experiences in working with students in the K-5 environment and am now looking forward to the Middle School experience.
