I’m Denise Webster and I’m very excited to be one of the assistant principals at Rice Creek Elementary School.  This is my 25th year in Education having previously worked for seven years in the Special Education Department at the District Office.  Prior to that, I taught for sixteen years as a special education teacher at Forest Lake Elementary and Rice Creek Elementary in Richland Two, F.J. DeLaine and Oakland Elementary Schools in Sumter School District Two.  I graduated from the State University of New York at Geneseo with my Bachelor of Science degree in Special Education, and the University of South Carolina with two Masters of Education degrees in Special Education and Educational Administration.  I am currently pursuing my Doctorate in Special Education Administration at USC – Go Gamecocks!
