Dr. Christian Pantin joined the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System in 2008. He taught mathematics for several years before becoming a Professional Learning Mathematics Coach for the school district. A few years later, Dr. Pantin became an Assistant Principal at Sol. C. Johnson High School.
Dr. Pantin grew up in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, a dual-island Caribbean nation. He earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from South Carolina State University. As a career changer, he received his teacher certification from Armstrong State University and later received his Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Valdosta State University.
Dr. Pantin views a collaborative school environment as the key to creating successful teachers and students. He believes partnerships with parents and community partners are essential to enriching the experience at George A. Mercer Middle School.
During his free time, Dr. Pantin enjoys spending time with his family and watching or attending sporting events such as football, basketball, rugby, and soccer. He believes in the words of Booker T. Washington, "Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome." Dr. Pantin lives by the mantra, no matter the task at hand, you must always see it through.
