  • Welcome to Loyd Auman! A place where children come to school to learn, teachers come to teach and empower students, and parents send their students and know they are cared for and safe. We are developing creative thinkers and responsible leaders who will excel as global 21st-century learners. We encourage our community to join us as we prepare our students for this lifelong journey. We take pride in our accomplishments and are very proud of our students. Please feel free to contact me at any time. We are looking forward to a great year.

  • Greetings to all of our Loyd Auman Elementary school families and community! It is very exciting and rewarding to work as the Assistant Principal of Loyd Auman – the home of the BEARS! There is a large emphasis on treating each other as a family here, which means that everyone is expected to use his/her best manners, respect one another, be a responsible citizen, and help each other in every way possible to make sure that our school is a safe and a fun place to learn. We feel that every student here at this school is important, and we want all students to experience that wonderful feeling of success! I couldn’t be more excited to join this team of educators who are committed to the importance of character, acceptance, perseverance, and grit.  Should you ever need to speak with me, please feel free to email me at queeshatillman@ccs.k12.nc.us or call me at 910.868.8153.

    I look forward to being a partner in your child’s education!
    Much appreciated,

    Dr. Queesha Tillman
