Chase Willingham

Principal

I was born in Alabama but grew up in the Greenville, SC area. I graduated from Travelers Rest High School and went on to Erskine College on a baseball scholarship. At Erskine, I received a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. There I was a member of the baseball team and also coached baseball at Abbeville High School. After graduating from Erskine College, I married my high school sweetheart, Morgan, and we have been married since 2006 and have four wonderful children.

In 2006, I began teaching 5th grade at Monaview Elementary and taught 5th grade there for 4 years. At Monaview, I taught all academic subjects to a diverse group of students.

I have completed my Masters and Ed.S in School Leadership and am currently attending the University of South Carolina to finish my Ph.D. In my spare time, I enjoy playing golf, reading, fishing, and I am a University of Alabama football fanatic! I am very excited to be serving on the administration team at Lead Academy and being part of building a school like no other! I encourage open communication and discussion with all students and parents.
