Mrs. Gretchen Carlson


Hi, I’m Gretchen Carlson, Assistant Principal for McColl Elementary Middle School. A 1991 graduate of MCHS, I have been an educator in Marlboro County for 23 years. I began my career as a 5th grade teacher at Bennettsville Elementary School and taught there for 9 years, of which I have many fond memories! While teaching I longed to effect more than just the students that were in my class each year. I wanted to share the love of reading to all children. This set off my journey to receive my master’s in library and Information Science at the University of South Carolina. I was a media specialist for 13 years; Bennettsville Middle for 4 of those years and McColl school for 9.

I have been happily married to Derek for almost 16 years now and we share one son, Parker. Parker is 26 and lives in Greer, SC where he works for BMW. Our little family has been very blessed. My hobbies decorating and spending time with family on the weekends. I look forward to another great year as a Red Devil!
