Hello! I am Mr. Eaton. This is my 11th year at WMS and my 24th year as an educator. I was fortunate to graduate from Wheelersburg High School in 1997. In 2001, I earned an Elementary Education Degree (Grades 1-8) from Mount Union College (Now Mount Union University). My Master's Degree is in Educational Administration from Ohio University.
My educational career began in Salem, Ohio at Southeast Elementary School where I taught sixth grade Math/Science. I also acted as the intramural director while at Southeast Elementary. From that point, I spent twelve years in Greenfield, Ohio. I taught sixth grade students in several content areas. Some of my other positions included coaching, weight room coordinator, teacher leader, and high school athletic director. While at WMS, I have taught technology for grades 4, 6, 7, and 8 and fulfilled duties as WMS Athletic Director/Assistant Principal and now WMS Principal. I feel blessed with the multitude of opportunities and wonderful people and students I have had the pleasure of interacting with in my career.
WMS is a wonderful school. WMS continues to grow and pursue excellence. Our staff is second-to-none. Our students continue to amaze and display wonderful character. Our community is filled with PRIDE. We are the "Pirates bold from Wheelersburg" and our stance will always remain strong and steadfast. Go Burg!
