The bulk of my career has been spent working with students at the elementary, secondary, and collegiate level. I have also worked with youth via the Urban League, Girl Scouts of America, the SC Autism Society, SC Student Loan Corporation, and other youth programs.
I earned my Bachelors of Science from the College of Charleston, and my Masters and Educational Specialist degrees from the University of South Carolina... Go Gamecocks! Prior to pursuing administration I also served as an elementary school counselor. This is my 12th year in education and I am eager to see what the next 12 years will bring, starting with my placement at SMS.

Greetings SMS Tigers,
It is indeed a pleasure to be serving as your Assistant Principal this year. I am excited about the many opportunities that await for us to learn and grow together. I am an administrator who believes every child matters, every child should be valued, and every child can learn. It is my desire to minimize the barriers that impede students' success, by creating an environment where students are provided the academic, social/emotional and career tools they need in order to be successful. Through a rigorous and relevant curriculum, and establishment of authentic relationships, this can become a reality. I am here to serve and to motivate, celebrate, and uplift students. I welcome the opportunity to serve you, the parents, and your child(ren) as we partner together for a terrific school year. 
If I can be of assistance at any time, please do not hesitate to contact me via phone or e-mail. All the best.
Yours in education,
Mrs. Kendra Williams, Ed.S
