Message from the Principal
I am honored to serve as the Acting Principal at Pine Grove Elementary.
I am a graduate of Eau Claire High School in Richland School District One. After graduating high school, I attended Bennett College in Greensboro, NC and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education. I continued my education at the University of South Carolina and earned a Master of Education degree in Education Administration, an Education Specialist degree in Education Administration with an Emphasis in Superintendency and a Doctorate of Education in Curriculum and Instruction with an Emphasis in Curriculum Studies. I started my teaching career as a 5th grade teacher in Richland One.
I look forward to working with the faculty, staff, students, parents, and community members in the upcoming school year. Pine Grove is a community-based school that ensures each learner achieves his/her potential in a safe, caring, academically challenging and diverse learning environment.
This school year will be filled with exciting lessons, field trips, programs, and events. Let’s continue working together and let’s make the 2016-2017 school year a great school year.
Dr. Tracy M. Pickett
