Dr. Theodore Prioleau, Interim Principal

I would like to introduce myself as the interim principal at JK Gourdin Elementary. First and most important is that I am truly humbled to be granted this opportunity to serve this great school community. I am a product of the Berkeley County School District, having graduated from the former Macedonia High School, class of 1981. After graduating from high school I matriculated to South Carolina State University where I obtained both a Bachelors and Masters Degrees. I later attended The Citadel where I earned a Masters of Education degree as well as an Education Specialist degree in school administration. In 2009, I was blessed to earn a Doctorate of Education degree from Nova Southeastern University. I describe myself as a servant leader who believes in ensuring the success and well-being of all people. I have served in public education for 30 plus years and have built many lasting professional relationships. I have 22 years of school administration experience at the elementary and middle school levels. When I am not in a school building or attending an educational event, I enjoy attending and watching sporting events, traveling, and working in my church. 

Please know that my door and my heart are always opened to those I serve.
