Mr. Anthony Rey


Hello to all students and parents of Chinquapin Elementary School!  My name is Anthony Rey and I will be your new Career and Technical Education (Computer) Teacher.  I am happy to be here and eager to get to know each one of you.  My wife and I are a military family with prior assignments to Randolph AFB, Texas; Andrews AFB, Maryland; and Vandenberg AFB, California.  We recently resided on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii for four years before moving to North Carolina this past July 2020.  My wife’s current duty station is at Seymour Johnson AFB.  I was in the U.S. Air Force and served as a military police officer for nearly seven years, but we later decided that she is better suited for the military life.


My wife and I have three children: a seven-year-old son, a two-year-old daughter, and one-year-old son.  We live in Pikeville, North Carolina.  I drive an hour each way, and the long commute is worth coming to Chinquapin!  We have two cats, but many of the students beat me by several chickens, donkeys, dogs, horses, and an Emu! 


I earned a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Management and a Master of Science in Business Administration from the University of La Verne.  I also received my Associate of Applied Science degree in Criminal Justice from the Community College of the Air Force and an Associates degree in Information Technology from Strayer University.  I am a lifelong learner and hopefully I can bring the passion of learning to your children.  I am overly excited, and I know we will make this a great school year.
