Mrs. Crystal Sandifer, Principal

 

I am a York native with 20 years of experience in education. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Winthrop University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education. I began my career as a fourth grade teacher in York School District One and earned a Master of Education Degree in Reading. I served as a Literacy Coach and then earned a Master of Education Degree in Educational Administration from the University of South Carolina. I served as an instructor at York Technical College, a Parent/Teacher Specialist, and an assistant principal before becoming principal at Harold C. Johnson in 2016.  I LOVE my HCJ FAMILY, and I am so proud of my students and staff! I have been married to my high school sweetheart for over 19 years, and we have two beautiful daughters who keep us very, very busy! We are very involved in our local church and stay busy with our girls’ dance and music lessons. We love spending time on our farm and vacationing at the beach and the mountains.

Mrs. Hannah Rescigno, Assistant Principal

I am so excited to join the HCJ family to serve as Assistant Principal. The 2020-2021 school year marks my 11th year in education. After graduating from the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks!), I began my teaching career at York Middle School as an 8th grade math teacher. I earned a Master of Education degree in Educational Administration from the University of South Carolina. After teaching for eight years, I had the privilege of moving into the Assistant Principal role for two years.

My husband and I have been married for six years and welcomed our sweet daughter in 2018. As a native of York and a YCHS graduate, I know first-hand the amazing opportunities our district has to offer. I am committed to the students, staff, and parents of this community. I am excited to meet all of our students and be a part of their success throughout this year
