Mrs. Kelly Gabriel, Principal

Being the Principal at Berkeley Elementary School is a privilege and blessing.  I have been the principal here since 2016, and I still love each day at BES. 

I have a wonderful family, which consists of three dogs and an 18-year-old son who will attend The Citadel in August 2022.  My husband is a resource teacher and varsity football coach for Berkeley High School.

At BES, we teach the whole child, which includes valuable work and life skills. We meet the needs of our students by using data driven teaching strategies along with high academic standards.  We strive to create memorable moments for our students that inspires a love for learning.  All BES students have an opportunity to grow academically and socially.  

Thank you for letting me be a part of your child’s life every day.  Please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions.
