Welcome to Ben Hazel Primary School, the home of the  Busy Bees!

The staff and I welcome you to come and see the exciting things going on at our school.  This is my first year as principal of Ben Hazel Primary. I come to Ben Hazel with sixteen years of experience in education. I taught first and second grade at Ben Hazel Primary for 10 years and also taught fourth grade at Fennell Elementary. I have taught paralegal classes at the Technical College of the Lowcountry. Before returning to Ben Hazel, I served as the Master Teacher at Varnville Elementary for four years.  I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education and later earned a Master's Degree in Reading and Literacy and an Educational Specialist Degree in Administration from Walden University. I was blessed to attend Ben Hazel Primary as a child and to graduate from Wade Hampton High School. My husband and I reside in Hampton and have six children and three grandchildren. All of them have (or will soon) attend Hampton District One schools.


Ben Hazel Primary serves children ages Prekindergarten through third grade. We are a small, family oriented community school. We provide a rigorous academic program and have outstanding classroom teachers and support staff. We have an active Principal's advisory committee, School Improvement Council and Parent Teacher Organization. We are involved in many community events.


I encourage you to become involved in our school. Together we can create a positive learning experience for all students. We are always striving to be the best we can "bee".
