Michelle Creammer


I have been involved with education for 24 years. With much patience, I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education, a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education as well as a Master’s Degree in School Administration. My degrees were earned from The University of North Carolina at Pembroke.

During my years, I have taught various grade levels in many areas including Germany before coming to Hoke County Schools in 2008. I taught 2nd grade at Sandy Grove Elementary School before becoming the Assistant Principal at Upchurch Elementary in 2009 and I served in that capacity until 2013. In 2013 I was named the Principal at East Hoke Middle School and quickly decided that there is no place I would rather be!

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband Alex, who is retired, and my grown children Tyler and Kayleigh. I also enjoy the beach, attending sporting events and going to the mountains.

As the principal I know this is going to be a great year at East Hoke Middle School! If you need anything, I am always available. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns.
