With an emphasis on enhancing Pre-K opportunities preparing young students for a successful K-12 experience, Hamilton County Schools today named Kimberly Pringle as its new director of Early Learning.

Currently the principal at Snow Hill Elementary School, Ms. Pringle will begin her new duties on June
24.

The director of Early Learning is responsible for supporting Pre-K teachers, creating cohesion between Pre-K and K-12 education, and working with community partners to improve
pre-kindergarten opportunities for all Hamilton County children.

“We are excited to bring Kim onboard to support our youngest learners in Hamilton County,” said HCS Deputy Superintendent of Schools Dr. Sonia Stewart. “The work we do with children before they reach kindergarten is not only our first intervention, but often our most important one. I know that Kim's background with diverse students in various grade-bands will allow her to strengthen all of our work in this space.” 

In her eighteenth year of public education, Ms. Pringle has spent the past five years as principal of Snow Hill Elementary School. Her career also includes three years as a high school teacher, six years as an elementary teacher, and three years as an assistant principal. Ms. Pringle holds a Master of Education Degree in leadership from Trevecca Nazarene University, a Master’s Degree in Education from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and a Bachelor of Music in Education from Middle Tennessee State University.

“Early learning matters,” Ms. Pringle said. “I look forward to the opportunity to work collaboratively in support of early learning opportunities for the young children of Hamilton County. By engaging with them before they reach Kindergarten, we can bend the curve early and improve outcomes during their time in grades K-12.”
