About Us


Mr. Keith L. Davis

    My name is Keith L. Davis. I was originally raised in Norlina, NC and later grew up and graduated from the Richmond/Chesterfield, Va areas. My educational career began 18 years ago. I taught theater arts at the high school level for 3 years in the Chesterfield County Public School system in Va. My career in Craven County Public Schools began in 2008 as I served as the theater arts teacher and director for Grover C. Fields Middle School(GCF) for 7 dynamic years. Upon leaving the classroom, I participated in both phases of the CCS (G.R.O.W.) Leadership program, and was promoted to the role of Assistant Principal in 2015 serving 4 consecutive years at the middle school level at GCF. In 2019, I transitioned to the elementary school level to serve 3 rewarding years at J.T. Barber Elementary School followed by recently completing an amazing 2022-23 school year at Trent Park Elementary School in the role of assistant principal.      My scholastic background includes a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in Music Theatre with a dual concentration in Religious Studies from Elon University. I earned my certification in Education from East Carolina University and a Masters of Science degree in School Administration from Scranton University. There is a quote that says, “Kids do not care how much you know until they know how much you care.” I am highly committed to the promising success of every student I serve and believe that every educator has the same capability to leave a great and lasting impact on both the academic and personal experiences of each child."    I enjoy spending time with my family, serving in ministry, relaxing and binge-watching new television shows/ movies, traveling, and can be seen from time to time performing live on stage in plays and musicals at some of New Bern’s premiere theaters.
