Ingle Family

   The Ingle Family (from L to R):
Avery, Caden, Deb, Maggie Mae, Don, and Greyson


Hello.  My name is Don Ingle and this is my 10th year teaching middle grades mathematics and my 3rd year at the Clyde A. Erwin Middle School.  Before coming to CAEMS, I taught 8th grade mathematics at North Buncombe Middle School for three years.  I am originally from the Leicester area and graduated from Clyde A. Erwin High School in 1995.   

Before coming home to Buncombe County, I taught for 4 1/2 years at GC Hawley Middle School in Creedmoor, North Carolina.  Creedmoor is located in Granville County, a rural county just north of the Raleigh-Durham area.
 
In 1999, I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke with a Bachelors of Science degree in Mass Communications with a concentration in TV broadcasting.  For eight years, I was a news photographer for television stations (WCTI in New Bern and WRAL in Raleigh). During my eight years in the television business, I got to see some interesting places and meet some pretty remarkable people.  My list of people I have interviewed include:  Tiger Woods, Dean Smith, Roy Williams, Mike Krzyzkewski, Tom Selleck, Jeff Gordon, Greg Biffle, and Jimmie Johnson just to name a few.  I was lucky enough to work at Super Bowl XXXVIII (Panthers vs. Patriots) in Houston, the 2004 Mens' Basketball Final Four in San Antonio, Germany, Chicago, and New York City.  You name it and I have probably been there in some form, shape, or fashion. 
 
I enjoyed shooting high school football for "Football Friday" for WRAL.  Here is a link to some of the stories I have done in the past:  Don Ingle Football Friday - WRAL   
 
I am married to a fellow teacher.  My wife Deb is a Family and Consumer Sciences teachers @ Clyde A. Erwin High School.  We are high school sweethearts.  We have been married for 17 amazing years and in December we will add another year.  We have three fun, handsome sons (Avery - 11 years, Greyson - 9 years, and Caden - 7 years).  They are into any sport that is in season, anything Alabama Crimson Tide, and electronics.
 
I am also currently the youth pastor at Liberty Baptist Church in Candler, North Carolina.  My wife and I were also co-youth ministers at Olive Branch Baptist Church in Durham, where we served for almost 8 years.  We worked with ages 8th grade thru 12th grade.
