Dr. Jacqueline Persinski

I am originally from Waco, Texas and graduated from Texas Tech University with a B.A in History (1998).  Following, I moved to South Carolina to attend Winthrop University and earned my M.A. in History (1999) and an M.A.T in Social Studies (2003).  I received my first teaching position at Darlington High School where I taught Global Studies in the 9th grade Academy for two years; I then taught at Monroe Middle School for a period of 3 years and earned my administration degree from UNCC.   I was a teacher and the Department Chair in the Social Studies Department at Northwestern High School for ten years before becoming an Assistant Principal for Curriculum.  While a Trojan, I completed my doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction from Gardner-Webb University in 2015. 

I am married and have a fabulous 5 year old son, Alek, who attends York Road Elementary.  My spare time is spent with family and training for marathons.  My first marathon was the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, DC in October of 2019, and since I have completed 5 marathons.  

I love being a Trojan, and I look forward to a fabulous year!
