8:00 AM - 12:30 PM Students' Last Day of School
To the Alcorn Family:
It is with great pride and excitement that I serve as Acting Principal of Alcorn Middle School. I welcome all students and parents to the 2022-2023 school year. This year, our shared focus is GROWTH as it pertains to cultivating positive mindsets, working collaboratively as a team, increasing skill mastery, and creating a positive school community. I firmly believe our students are capable of achieving academic success. Students will participate in engaging instruction that will activate inquiry-based skills, which will prepare them to become college and career ready.
This year marks my 20th year in education. My teaching career began in Sumter, SC at Sumter High School and continued at Williams Middle School in Florence, SC. In 2004, I taught for 10 years at W.A. Perry Middle School. As I transitioned to administration, I served as an assistant principal at A.C. Flora and Columbia High Schools.
I look forward to building positive relationships with students, parents, and community partners as we work together to make the 2022-2023 school year very successful. Parents are welcome to contact me at 803-735-3439 or via email at Kreshella.Goodman@richlandone.org with any questions or concerns.
