Mrs. Crystal Sandifer, Principal

 

I am a York native with 18 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 have been married to my high school sweetheart for over 17 years, and we have two beautiful daughters who keep us very, very busy! We are very involved in our local church and 4-H projects. We love spending time on our farm and vacationing at the beach and the mountains.

Mrs. Patrice Green, Assistant Principal

I am excited to serve as assistant principal at Harold C. Johnson for the 2017-2018 school year. Prior to this position, I served eight years as an eighth grade South Carolina History teacher at York Middle School. Before joining the staff at YMS, I taught seventh grade World History in Lee County, South Carolina.

I grew up in a small town called Givhans, South Carolina, where I attended Summerville High School, the home of the Mighty Greenwave! I received an undergraduate degree in 2004 from Francis Marion University, majoring in history and secondary education. In 2010, I obtained my master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from Winthrop University. In 2013, I decided to further my education at Arkansas State University, where I majored in educational leadership.

 During my free time I enjoy spending time with my three children. I also love to shop, swim, and read.
