Mr. Robert Neuner, Principal
My name is Robert Neuner, and I am proud to be the principal of Windsor Hill. I am a product of Dorchester District Two, as I am a 1988 graduate of Summerville High School. Upon graduating, I attended Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree with a concentration in Aeronautical Studies in 1992. I then moved back to South Carolina and earned multiple teaching certificates and a Master's degree in Education, focusing on Natural Science Education from Coastal Carolina University. From 1994 through 2006, I taught science in Richmond, Virginia. In 2002, I earned my second Master's degree in Administration from the College of William and Mary, and just a few years later in 2006, my family and I moved back home to Summerville. During the 2006-2007 school year I taught 8th grade science at Alston Middle School., and then moved to Gregg Middle School in 2007 as an assistant principal. My wife, Stefanie Neuner, is an art teacher at Knightsville Elementary. We have two young sons, Freddie and Charlie. I am a firm believer that everyone can learn and that learning should be a life long endeavor.
Mrs. Jennifer Bates, Assistant Principal
My name is Jennifer Bates, and I am excited to be the Assistant Principal at Windsor Hill. I was born and raised in North Charleston, SC. I attended the College of Charleston to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education and had the privilege of completing my student teaching experience at Windsor Hill in the spring of 1998. After I graduated from the College of Charleston in 1998, I began my career with Dorchester District Two teaching fifth grade at Beech Hill Elementary School. I immediately began a Master’s program in Special Education with a focus in Learning Disabilities after my first year of teaching, and I graduated with my Master’s degree in Special Education from the University of Charleston in December 2001. Since I loved helping students who struggled to read, I moved down to teach fourth grade at-risk students. During my time as a fourth grade teacher, I taught READ 180 and earned my National Board Certification as a Middle Childhood Generalist in 2005. I enjoyed my time working with at-risk fourth grade students; however, an opportunity opened up in 2006 for me to work with students with special needs by becoming the special education resource support teacher. I continued to work in this role at Beech Hill until the fall of 2012 when I was given the opportunity to grow as a leader by working at the district level as the Elementary Special Education Curriculum Interventionist. In this role, I supported the twelve elementary schools’ special education curriculum programs. During this time, I pursued a second Master’s degree in Elementary School Administration and Leadership. I graduated with this Master’s degree in the spring of 2016. I was thrilled to return to Windsor Hill this past 2016-2017 school year as the Title I Facilitator and literacy coach. I work hard to find balance between my school and home life. My husband,Alan, and I have been married for 11 years and have a dog and two cats. I have been a lifelong learner and hope to instill my love of learning in the children at Windsor Hill!
