“I am so excited to serve School District Five in this capacity,” McCaskill said. “I have been in the district for 15 years as an Assistant Principal and Principal at Irmo Elementary and currently as the Director of Elementary Education. Prior to my time in the district I taught at Manning Middle School in Manning, South Carolina, Crosswell Drive Elementary in Sumter, South Carolina, and served as Curriculum Coordinator and Assistant Principal in Sumter as well. These various experiences have given me an insight into the needs of all children. I value collaboration and teamwork. I look forward to continuing a positive trend in academics for all students in School District Five.”
