Dr. Rosemary Nelson - Assistant Principal

Dr. Rosemary Nelson

My name is Rosemary Nelson and I am looking forward to serving the student body, parents, and great community as Assistant Principal of Pickens Junior High School for the 2021-2022 school year. I have taught and coached in Pickens County since 2004 and proud to say all three of my children: Fallon, Alexis, and Dylan, have graduated from the Pickens County School District. We, the faculty and staff, believe in the power of education and knowledge, and are looking forward to preparing your students for their future.


My background consists of a B.S. (Bachelor of Science) degree in Accounting from St. Peter’s College and an MBA (Masters of Business Administration) degree in Business Administration from Mercer University. When I decided to pursue education as a career I earned a teaching certification from Berry College. I then went on to earn my Ed. D from Walden University and an Educational Leadership certification from University of North Georgia.


In my spare time I enjoy reading, exercising, and spending quality time with my children and my five wonderful grandchildren: Tristan, Cole, Colin, Holly, and Rowan.
