Bridge Creek Elementary School will soon have a new yet familiar leader. On July 1, Taurean Robinson will become the principal of Bridge Creek.
“Taurean is a perfect example of nurturing and empowering our own staff to continue to lead and build on the Richland Two legacy of excellence,” said Interim Superintendent Nancy Gregory. “I am excited for this next chapter in his service to our community.”
Mr. Robinson has served as an assistant principal at Bridge Creek for the past five years. He began his career in education as an ELA/social studies teacher at Bridge Creek in 2010. After five years in the classroom, he was promoted to assistant principal at Pontiac Elementary School.
“I am honored to have had the privilege of serving at Bridge Creek Elementary as a teacher, assistant principal, and now principal. In my new role, I look forward to working with teachers, parents, and community members to ensure all students are provided with a safe and positive learning environment,” Mr. Robinson said.
Mr. Robinson has an extensive formal education background earning a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Mass communications with a minor in Elementary Education and two master’s degrees – first, in Elementary Education and second, in Educational Administration from the University of South Carolina (USC). He is on track to complete a Doctorate of Education in Education and Curriculum Studies from USC next year.
In his spare time, Mr. Robinson enjoys spending time with his family, playing tennis, and running as long as he can listen to music.
Mr. Robinson succeeds Kristen Eubanks who has led the school since 2013. Under Ms. Eubanks’ leadership, Bridge Creek Elementary recently received recertification as a National Demonstration School by Magnet Schools of America. He looks forward to, “continuing to integrate our STEAMM magnet into the curriculum to provide every child, every chance, every day!”
