Dr. Jacqueline Persinski

I am originally from Waco, Texas and graduated from Texas Tech University with a B.A in History (1998).  Following that, 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 Curriculum and Instruction doctorate from Gardner-Webb University in 2015. 

I am married and have a fabulous son, Alek, who attends York Road Elementary.  My spare time is spent with family and training for marathons.

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