Principal's Corner


Mrs. Tamara Nelson, Principal

My name is Tamara Nelson and I am the Principal of Sophia P. Kingston Elementary.  It is an honor to serve as the Instructional Leader of the school where I not only started my career but where I attended school as a child.  I graduated from Selma High School in 1989 with honors.  After graduation, I attended Alabama State University and earned a bachelor's and master's degree in Elementary Education.  I later returned to Alabama State and earned a second master's in Instructional Leadership.  This school year marks my 29th year in education and I have loved every minute of it!

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Marcus, and our sons, Devontae, Juvontae, and Tarmatra.  I also enjoy spending time with my granddaughters Hannah, Zuri, and Skyler.
