Loso joins CHS administration team


You may have noticed a new face in the halls — or maybe, for some of you, a familiar one.

Josh Loso, formerly an assistant principal at Inman Intermediate, is the new assistant principal at Chapman.

The administration has been operating with only two assistant principals, and Loso was called on to help. 

“They just asked if they could get a little help down here with the administration stuff so I came down here,” said Loso.

The administrators are grateful to have the extra hands.  

“He’s jumped right in and taken on a lot of responsibilities,” said Assistant Principal Amy Driggers. 

When Loso was in school, he developed a love for mathematics, which later inspired him to become a math teacher, but that was not his first plan. 

“I went to college for a computer science degree and realized by the end that’s not what I wanted to do,” Loso said. “I went back and got my teaching degree and then my administrative degree to try and move up,” said Loso. 

He began his career in Greenville County where he taught 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade math for ten years as well as being the head baseball coach. 

“I met my wife in the middle of that and my wife is from Inman, and so she actually went through Inman Elementary, Mabry and graduated from here in 2004,” said Loso. 

His wife later introduced him to some people from the district, and he got a job as an instructional coach at Mabry where he worked for a year before moving to Inman Intermediate for four years. 

Loso was a critical component of District One’s COVID plan last year, leading the Online Academy. When that ended, he took a job as Instructional Technology Integration Facilitator, a job that was particularly important as teachers worked to integrate the new interactive panels in their classrooms. 

Loso said he’s likely only going to be at Chapman until the end of the semester, but that regardless of where he ends up, he enjoys working in District One.

“People care about you, and I know, being married to my wife who’s from Inman, that it’s just that small-town community feel that people do care about you, know what’s going on, will rally together if something negative happens, and take care of you,” he said.
