Principal's Message
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! It is my pleasure to be a part of the James Island Elementary family. I am fortunate to be entering my 23rd year with Charleston County School District. I have served in many leadership roles throughout my tenure and being the principal of JIES is one of the most fulfilling.

Moving James Island Elementary to the next level with strong academic programs, knowledgeable staff members, and the development of partnerships is a goal that I hope we can achieve. Achieving this goal will take team work and a committed partnership. Our committed partnership will includes students, parents, teachers, all staff /faculty members, the district, and our community that are committed to developing responsible lifelong learners.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that need to be addressed. You may reach me at 843-762-8243 or Thanks for all that you are doing to make James Island Elementary great.
