Administration

Dr. Kimberly Alicia Hobley, Director

I have devoted more than 18 years educating students, coaching teachers, and leading educational teams to academic success and am honored to serve as the Director of Alternative Education for the Right Choices Program at Beaufort County School District. I am committed to helping students achieve academic success, regardless of obstacles they may face.

Prior to becoming the Director of Right Choices, I taught for both Broward County Schools in Fort Lauderdale, FL and Atlanta Public Schools, in Atlanta, GA. I further developed my professional skills within Atlanta Public Schools as an Instructional Coach, Assistant Principal, and Social Emotional Learning Coach.

I earned a Bachelor's Degree from the University of North Florida and a Master’s in Foundations of Education from Florida Atlantic University. I was awarded a Doctorate from Nova Southeastern University.

 

Ms. Francina Dantzler, Assistant Director

I am honored to serve the students, staff and parents of Right Choices once again during my 26+ years experience. My background in education began as the Director of Upward Bound, a program geared towards assisting low-wealth families and first generation college students to become academically ready for education beyond high school. While serving in this role, I also worked with high school dropouts at Adult Education. Both positions were rewarding to me because I witnessed students improving their academic ability and using the new skills to pursue work and post secondary dreams.

After entering in the public school sector, I served as a school counselor, an assistant principal at all academic levels and a high school principal. In each role, I dedicated my expertise into ensuring that students, teachers and staff were in an environment that was safe, secure, warm, and conducive to learning for all.

I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and a Master of Education in Counselor Education from South Carolina State University, and an Educational Specialist degree in Educational Administration from the University of South Carolina Columbia. Currently, I am pursuing my Education Doctorate degree in Educational Practice and Innovation from the University of South Carolina.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending with my son, Christopher and, Joey, my toy poodle.
