Mrs. Marissa Watson

Interim Principal

I would like to extend a warm welcome to a new school year! I am excited to serve Cane Bay Elementary as Interim Principal. I am thankful for the opportunity to work with an incredibly talented and dedicated faculty and staff.

I attended schools in Berkeley County. Upon graduating from the College of Charleston, I returned to Berkeley County School District as a teacher. I earned my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from The Citadel Graduate College and moved to a position as an instructional coach prior to becoming an assistant principal.  I am excited to bring my past years of experience to partner with each of you as we continue to serve the students of Cane Bay Elementary.

I believe teamwork and open communication are very important and know that together we will continue to ensure a positive and productive learning environment for our students. I am excited to help support the students, parents, teachers, and community of Cane Bay Elementary! Together, we can continue to focus on high student achievement, innovation, and the development of well-rounded students.

Please feel free to stop by the school to introduce yourself or share your concerns or questions. You may contact me by e-mail at or by phone 843-899-5100 extension 1033.
