Charles Peden Administrative Offices

charles pedenMr. Charles Peden (right, during the grand opening at David Crockett Elementary School on Aug. 24, 2017) returned to his hometown of Marshall in 1966 as a Social Studies teacher at Marshall Junior High. A graduate of East Texas Baptist University and former minister of music and religious education at Baptist church in Fort Worth and Houston, Mr. Peden eventually entered public education and taught Social Studies at Pasadena (TX) High School before coming back home to work in Marshall. After two years at Marshall Junior High, Mr. Peden was promoted to Principal at David Crockett Elementary, where he remains as the longest-tenured campus principal in the history of Crockett at 14 years, from 1968-1982. During that time, he played a key role in the integration of Marshall Public Schools, including merging the students and faculty of Dunbar Elementary School with the Crockett family. By many accounts, the transition was a smooth one credited to his leadership. In 1982, Mr. Peden was moved over to the new Sam Houston Middle School, where he served as Principal for seven more years until his retirement in 1989.
The Charles Peden Administrative Offices house the administration team at David Crockett Elementary, including offices for the Principal, Assistant Principal, Counselor, Interventionists, Receptionist, Secretaries and Nurse. Includes in this wing of the school are the nurses' clinic, conference room, teachers workroom, file room and other needed areas of administration.
