Janice Frazier, who has been the assistant principal at Silk Hope School for the past four years, will become the principal of the school on July 1 following the retirement of longtime principal Rob Tharp.

Frazier came to Chatham County Schools in 2001 after spending the first portion of her career in Guilford County. She graduated from UNC Greensboro in 1990 with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. From 1990 until 1993 she taught sixth grade in Guilford County Schools and from 1993 through 1999 taught fifth grade in the same school system. While at General Greene Elementary School, she was named the school's Teacher of the Year. Frazier returned to UNCG in 1999 to pursue a Master of School Administration.

A native of Randolph County and graduate of Eastern Randolph High School, Frazier has had a connection to every aspect of the daily operation of Silk Hope School as assistant principal. Among her areas of responsibility were being in charge of buses, being the administrator for the Silk Hope Pre-K program, and dealing with discipline issues. She noted that Tharp having given her the opportunity to be involved in the many areas of the school had prepared her for the new position she will assume in July. She also mentioned how much she had enjoyed working closely with the school bus drivers.

“I am excited about continuing to be a part of the traditions and initiatives that have taken Silk Hope to a high level of success,” said Frazier.

Frazier noted transitions of staff due to retirements and meeting the needs of an ever-growing and changing student population among the challenges she expects to face in her role as principal. She is enthusiastic and confident about meeting these challenges.

Thad Urban, a former North Chatham teacher who interned at Silk Hope during the 2004-2005 school year as he finished an advanced degree in school administration, will replace Frazier as assistant principal.
