Mrs. Kelly Reese

My name is ​Kelly Reese,​ and I am excited to begin my fifth year at Lake Murray Elementary.  This year, I am excited to transition from an Assistant Principal to the Principal of our WONDERFUL school!  

Before working at Lake Murray Elementary, ​I was a teacher at ​Sandhills Elementary School, as well as a​ Literacy Coach at Frances Mack Intermediate School. ​I attended the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks!) where I earned a Bachelor's degree in English and two Masters' degrees in Elementary Education and Education Administration.

I ​find great joy in working with children, families, and teachers. I know the value of education and aim to help all students succeed​ and enjoy school.  Please let me know if I can ever be of assistance to you or your family.

In my spare time, I love playing with my children (Maggie and James), running with my husband (Brent), and traveling to new places. ​

Mr. Brian Scott

My name is Brian Scott, and I am one of the Assistant Principals at Lake Murray. I grew just around the corner from our school and graduated from Chapin High School. From there I attended the University of South Carolina's Darla Moore School of Business with a degree in Finance and Business Management. After a couple of years in banking and real estate, I decided to pursue my passion of working with children. I reentered USC to obtain my Masters in Elementary Education.

I have been in the district throughout my career in education, having taught both fourth and fifth grades at H.E. Corley and third grade at Nursery Road Elementary. After receiving my Masters in Educational Administration, I became the Administrative Assistant Principal at Irmo Elementary. I am entering my second year at LMES, where I look forward to building on the wonderful relationships that I established last year. 

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife Anne and our two year old son Benjamin. My hobbies include running and gardening.
