Timothy Chrestman, Assistant Principal


My name is Tim Chrestman and it is an honor to be an assistant principal at DeSoto Central High School. I have been an educator for thirteen years in DeSoto County including teaching 7 years at Hernando High School and 6 year as an assistant principal at Southaven Middle School. I am a lifelong resident of DeSoto County, graduating from Hernando High School in 1997. I received my undergraduate degree in education from the University of Mississippi and my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Delta State University. My top priority is safety of the students and staff. Academic excellence is next on my list of priorities. I look forward to the challenge of taking a great school to the next level. This goal will become a reality when all those involved work together with a common goal. I am looking forward to a great school year and making a positive difference in the lives of young people.


I currently reside in Olive Branch, MS with my wife of ten years, Nicole Chrestman, who teaches at St. Benedict High School, and we have three children: Jaxon(8), Casen(4) and Kinsley(1).
