Erika Matzelle

Assistant Principal

Welcome to Sand Hill Elementary where I am honored to serve as the Assistant Principal this year. Throughout my teaching career, I knew that I wanted to continue to grow as an educator and leader.  I received my Master’s degree in Education from Lesley College in 2003 and then in 2017 I received a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership for the University of South Carolina.  I spent 10 years teaching kindergarten and first grade in Berkeley County.  As I began my own family, I wanted my children to attend their home schools and so I moved and became a teacher in Dorchester District Two.  I have served as a first-grade teacher, a Reading intervention teacher, a Behavior specialist/PBIS lead, and the Instructional Technology Specialist.  Prior to serving as the Assistant Principal Intern at Sand Hill, I was a lead teacher at Meeting Street Academy in Charleston. I am grateful that my journey into school leadership has brought me “home” to Dorchester School District Two and Sand Hill Elementary.  We look forward to another exciting year and many opportunities to continue to Learn, Grow, and Serve together!  Please do not hesitate to reach out if you need anything.
