About Us

  Jesse S. Bobo Elementary School's principal, Thomas Webster, started his teaching career as a 4th grade teacher in N. Charleston, SC. Coming to Spartanburg County School District Six in 1999, he taught 5th grade at Lone Oak Elementary School before joining the state in its first year of a "science coach" initiative. Named Spartanburg County School District Six Teacher of the Year in 2005, he later became Director of Science Education for the district. It was in this role that he was first privileged to collaborate with Jesse Bobo's students, parents, and staff. In 2012, he pursued and was selected for the opportunity to serve as Jesse Bobo's principal.

Mr. Webster believes in a school community that is characterized by strong and productive relationships between school staff, the students they teach, parents, and the larger community. It is his belief that, as these critical elements - students, parents, school staff, and community - work together towards the common goal of providing an exceptional education to Jesse Bobo students, exceptional student achievement will result.
