Assistant Principal's Message


Christopher Tuft
Assistant Principal
Balfour Elementary School

Welcome to Balfour Elementary!  My name is Christopher Tuft, and I am privileged to serve as the school’s assistant principal. 

I began my career in education in 2003 after graduating from Grove City College in Grove City, PA.  I am a National Board Certified Teacher, and have my Master of School Administration degree from Western Carolina University.  I spent 12 years teaching third and fourth grades in Guilford and Randolph Counties before coming to Asheboro.

I live in High Point with my wife, Jennifer, and our three children – Christian, Tyler, and Haley.  We also have a dog named Snowball.  When I’m not at school, I love to read, work in my yard, run marathons, and watch the Steelers play football.

I firmly believe that every child can learn and be successful.  It is our job as educators to work as a team to provide the environment and instruction to ensure that success.  I look forward to working with the students, staff, and families at Balfour as we learn and grow together. If you have questions or concerns, please feel to contact me.
