When students return to school on Monday, August 27, for the start of the new 2007-08 school year, they will see two new faces roaming the halls of Red Springs Middle School and Red Springs High School.
Vivian Tyndall is the new principal at Red Springs Middle, while Daniel Ryberg takes over the school administration at Red Springs High.
Mrs. Tyndall comes to Red Springs Middle School from Littlefield Middle School near Lumberton where she was an assistant principal. Before going into school administration, she was Family and Consumer Science teacher at Lumberton Senior High School for five years.
With over ten years in the educational field, she holds a B.S. in Family and Consumer Science degree from North Carolina A&T State University and a M.S. in Administration & Supervision/Curriculum Instruction from The University of North Carolina at Pembroke. She is also a National Board Certified teacher.
“My vision is to help make education a valuable asset for students in which they can build a strong foundation for the future,” Tyndall said. “I would like to provide leadership that will enable the teachers to teach the Standard Course of Study in the classrooms and provide greater success academically for all students in a safe orderly environment. By sharing and combining our resources with teachers, parents, students and the community, hopefully the gap will be closed in education and we can make a difference in the lives of our the children.”
She and her husband, Elton, have two girls, Ravyn and Kie’rra.
Mr. Ryberg comes to Red Springs High School from the Robeson County Career Center (Hilly Branch) in Lumberton, where he was in the same capacity as principal there.
A native of Charlotte, North Carolina, he is a graduate of Charlotte Catholic High School and got both his undergraduate and graduate degrees from The University of North Carolina at Pembroke.
Spending 15 years as a teacher, he has spent four years in school administration. His last assignment before moving to the career center was as an assistant principal at Rosenwald Elementary School in Fairmont for the last four years.
He has taught science, computer science, health and physical education during his educational career before moving into school administration.
