Assistant Principal, Shawn McCain

Dear Plain Elementary Family,

I am very excited and honored to be the assistant principal at Plain Elementary.  I would like to take this time to introduce myself. I started teaching physical education at Woodmont High School in 1999.  In 2001, I started teaching physical education at the elementary level.  In 2004, I became the full time physical education at Ellen Woodside Elementary.  In 2011, I became the assistant principal at Ellen Woodside.  I am also the assistant boys’ varsity basketball coach at Woodmont.  I have been coaching at Woodmont for 16 years.


On a personal level… My wife, Carrie, and I have been married for 14 years.  We are blessed with 3 beautiful children!  Alex, who is 13 years old, is in the 8th grade.  Ashlyn, our only daughter, is 11 years old and is in 6th grade.  Tanner, our most recent addition to our family, is 3 years old.  He keeps us very busy.  I am a sports fanatic and love watching or playing just about any sport.  Our family is a house divided, the girls are gamecock fans and the boys are Clemson fans.


I am honored to work with a wonderful group of staff members, parents, and community leaders all focused on the same mission.  I am focused on maintaining and continuing to improve the learning environment at Plain Elementary in order for students to grow academically as well as personally. If I can help or assist with anything, please feel free to contact me.
