Mrs. Tarver-Berry

Executive Director/Principal

I am very proud to be the Principal of The Palmetto School Tigers! Our mission goes beyond just words as my staff and I strive to provide optimal resources to all of our students each day. I received my Bachelors of Arts in Early Childhood Education, with a minor in Spanish, from Clark Atlanta University. I received my Masters of Arts in Educational Leadership from Kennesaw State University. For more than 20 years of my educational career, my skills and experiences have included bilingual/dual language instruction, district curriculum writing, standard setting for academic state testing, data studies, EdTech implementation, and advocating for at-risk youth consistently. I have worked at the public and charter school level as an instructor, Assistant Principal, and Principal.

I was born in Greenville, TX and grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. In my spare time, I love watching my Dallas Cowboys, spending time with my family, traveling, and singing. I firmly believe that a purposeful school leader must wholeheartedly believe in the success of each student while placing the most qualified personnel in place to carry out the mission and vision. We strive to attain this each day at The Palmetto School!

Mr. B

Assistant Principal

My name is Mr. B and I am the Assistant Principal at The Palmetto School.  I received my teaching degree from Pennsylvania State University in 2008.  I am currently seeking my Master’s at the University of South Carolina.  This year will be my 13th year at the school, and most of that time I have been the middle school teacher. My favorite subject to teach is math, but I also feel the other academic subjects can be fun too!!  It is my philosophy that everyone has the potential to learn and be successful.  Learning never stops and we all have the ability to teach someone else.  

I have been married to my wife Stacy for 13 years. We have three sons: James, Jarome, and Kydan.  I have one grandson named Isaiah and I love spending time with him.  At home I also have three dogs and four cats. 

Ms. Chris

Executive Assistant

My name is Chris Miller, known better as Ms. Chris, and I am the Executive Assistant at The Palmetto School. At the school I handle all work in the office including student enrollment, correspondence, school nurse, banking, ordering supplies, and any other duties that arise. I have been with the school for the past eight years. Prior to that, I spent eight years working in the Rock Hill School District at South Pointe High School in the Guidance office.

My husband and I live in Rock Hill and have a son and a daughter, but we are now empty-nesters. Going to the beach is one of my favorite past times!
