Meet Zindy Wilfong, Assistant Principal

I am honored to be a part of Mill Creek Middle School as the Assistant Principal.


I worked in Marketing and Accounting for several years. In 2007 I decided to become a Spanish teacher and obtained my teaching license as a Lateral Entry educator. Being born in Costa Rica, I felt excited to teach students my language and culture. I have spent the last 15 years with Catawba County Schools. I started my teaching career at Maiden Middle School as a Spanish teacher. In 2021, I took a position at Maiden High School and continued teaching Spanish.

I am passionate about empowering students to reach their full potential and invest in their education. I also come from a family of educators. My father was a principal, and my grandmother, two aunts, and a sister were teachers as well.

Favorite Activities

I love to spend time with my husband and two daughters. I enjoy practicing yoga, reading and watching TV.
