Meet our principal

BIS Principal

Greetings Parents, Students, and Community Members,

As principal, I would like to welcome you to Bennettsville Intermediate School, the Greatest School on Earth.  It gives me great pleasure to work alongside a dynamic staff and absolutely amazing students. This school year we have an intentional focus on Literacy, Attendance, and Mentorship.

I am from Cheraw, South Carolina. This is my thirteenth year in education and my sixth year as an educator in Marlboro County School District.  I have served as an elementary teacher, a curriculum coordinator, a SCTAP Master Teacher, assistant principal, and currently the principal at Bennettsville Intermediate School.  I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education, a Master of Education in Instructional Accommodations, and a Master of Education in Administration.  I have earned my National Board Certification in Literacy Reading-Language Arts in Early and Middle Childhood and am a Certified Numeracy Leader through the South Carolina Department of Education. 

Educating and advocating for children have always been a passion of mine. I have a quote that I strive to live by daily.  It states, “Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best they can possible be.” –Rita Pierson  I am extremely humbled and honored to serve you as principal of Bennettsville Intermediate School.
