Pelham Road Elementary Administration

Principal Kristy Qualls

Dear Parents of Pelham Road Elementary,

My name is Mrs. Kristy Qualls and I am the newly appointed principal of Pelham Road Elementary School! I am so proud to be an ALL STAR! I am truly humbled and blessed to be a part of an outstanding school community with a strong reputation for academic success and parental support. The outstanding work that has been accomplished at Pelham Road speaks to your dedication and commitment to collaborating with the school. I share your drive and passion for excellence!

On a personal note, I have been married to my husband, Damon Qualls for 7 years. He serves in administration as the assistant principal of Berea Middle School. We enjoy traveling and spending time with family. I also enjoy cooking and trying new recipes. I love Clemson University! I received my undergraduate degree from Clemson in Early Childhood Education – Go Tigers! I also have a Master’s degree from Columbia College in Divergent Learning and a Master’s in School Leadership from Furman University. I have been dedicated to public education and Greenville County Schools for more than fourteen years. My teaching career began at Alexander Elementary School as a classroom teacher, mostly in 3rd grade. After eight years at Alexander, I was recruited and the first teacher hired at A.J. Whittenberg Elementary School in downtown Greenville in 2010. I taught 2nd grade and 3rd grade. My administrative journey also began at Whittenberg! I was named Administrative Assistant in 2012 and I served in this role for 3 years before transitioning to Welcome Elementary School as Assistant Principal for the 2015-2016 school year.

I am elated to bring my skills as an educational leader to Pelham Road and to work with you as a partner in education to continue to provide our students with a quality education. I look forward to building positive, healthy relationships with you all! I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Pelham Road by building strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners. I look forward to partnering with you in your child’s education. Feel free to contact me by email or by phone 355-7610.

With warm regards,

Kristy Qualls
