Principal's Message

Welcome to Colleton County Middle School! 

Greetings Team Colleton:

It is with great enthusiasm that I announce my role as the incoming Principal for CCMS.  I am delighted and honored to serve in this capacity for the upcoming school year.  Over the last thirteen years, I have had the privilege of working at CCMS with talented, intelligent individuals who put our students' best interests first.  Together, we will continue to work together to ensure that our students are successful.  

My educational background has been rooted in Colleton County Middle School.  I have been in that building since it opened back in August of 2011 and have served many roles.  I have been a Science teacher, PLC leader, team leader, after school director, curriculum facilitator, and assistant principal.  I am looking to use my experience, and what I have learned from all of you, and apply it to this new role.

This year as we embark on this new journey together I want everyone to get a deeper understanding of the vision that I have for CCMS.  I firmly believe that all students can learn and achieve at high levels.  In order for us to make that vision come true, we will all need to work as a unified team.  Collaboration, establishing positive student relationships, and implementing best teaching practices will be our focus for the entire school year.  It will take all stakeholders to include teachers, administrators, PBSS specialists, counselors, students, parents, and other staff members to ensure that this vision comes to life.  All of you are important and bring much talent, knowledge, and expertise to our school.  You all are valued and play a critical role in helping our school reach the mission and vision.  I would not be here today if it wasn’t for the love and support of my CCMS family and the community of Colleton County.

I am honored and humbled to serve as the new principal for Colleton County Middle School.  I look forward to working with you all, and I sincerely welcome your input and support. I am excited about the things we will accomplish together for our students and look forward to celebrating our collective success this school year.  If you need to reach me my email is [email protected] or you can call at 843-782-0040.
