My name is Renee Roberts and I am the Assistant Principal at Coosa Elementary School.  I am a native Beaufortonian and love everything about the Lowcountry.  My husband and I have 2 kids: Zach and Gwendolyn.  I love learning and working with students every day!  I have experience teaching in grades 3-5 and working with students and teachers as both a math and literacy coach in my career.  To sharpen my saw, I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the beach, and running.
