I grew up in southern Ohio along the banks of the Ohio River. I attended Muskingum University where I received a B.A. in Religion & Music.  After working in ministry for several years, I went back to school to earn my teaching degree at Ashland University.



Hi! My name is Mr. Evan Staggs. I am excited to be your child’s 2nd Grade teacher this year at Carolina Forest International Elementary School. I have previously taught Pre-K and 3rd grade in Columbus, Ohio. I believe that life affords no greater responsibility, no greater purpose than the bringing up of the next generation. I am honored and excited to be working with your child this year.

I am married to the girl of my dreams. We have an awesome little guy named Jasper. I have two puppies named Roxy & Ginger. I worked as a Worship Pastor and as a Missionary prior to beginning my teaching career.
