Principal - Renata Johnson-Green

Greetings RES Family,


As principal of Ridgeland Elementary School, I plan to continue to bestow a great deal of time, thoughtfulness, and support upon the students, staff members, and parents of this school. This is a position that I do not take lightly. With minimal changes and some additional structures in place, all stakeholders can look forward to another awesome year of effective teaching and continuous learning at Ridgeland Elementary School!!


Knowing the importance of a solid education, I have attended several reputable schools: South Carolina State University – Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, Grand Canyon University – Master of Arts in Teaching, Converse College – Gifted and Talented Endorsement, Northcentral University – Masters of Education in Educational Leadership, Grand Canyon University – Masters of Education in Education Administration.


I have ten years of teaching experience (second, fourth, & fifth-grade levels); worked as a Numeracy Coach for two years and effectively labored as a principal for nine years. Throughout my career, I have earned numerous awards and completed several programs: Teacher of the Year (twice), Leadership Academy Participant, Principal Induction Program, Honorary Member of the Junior National Young Leaders Conference, iLead (SCASA Leadership Training), 4.0 Evaluator, & Palmetto Silver Award Winning School. Under my leadership, Ridgeland Elementary School's Report Card Rating has advanced from At-Risk/Unsatisfactory to Average.  Also, RES is a Points of Light - Blue Ribbon School of Excellence!!


I am truly grateful for the continuous opportunity to serve such a wonderful learning community that is striving to achieve excellence.
