Kristen Hopkins - Assistant Principal

Hello and Welcome!
I am incredibly honored and excited to be joining the team at Dr. Benjamin E. Mays Elementary School as the assistant principal.  As a team, we are working to find the "Leader In Me" for all staff and students, to help honor Dr. Benjamin E. Mays.  The upcoming year will be our best yet, as we will embrace becoming Mays Rays!  
I have served in numerous roles in education from kindergarten through twelfth grade.  I have been a teacher, assistant principal, mentor teacher, master teacher, instructional coordinator and a district instructional technology coordinator.  I received my undergraduate degree at Lander University in Elementary Education, my Masters at Winthrop University in Educational Curriculum and Leadership, my EdS from the University of South Carolina in Educational Administration.  I am currently working on my Doctorate at the University of South Carolina in Curriculum and Instruction.  I also have my National Board Certification.  My husband and I have two dogs that are spoiled rotten and are avid Gamecock fans.  I am also a voracious reader and enjoy going out to eat and the beach.
