    Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I am so excited to be your child's teacher! We have a BRIGHT future ahead of us this year!

    Teaching is something that I believe I have been “called” to do.  I attended Clemson University, where I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education in 2001 and my Master’s degree in Reading Education in 2007.  I am starting my seventeeth year of teaching.  I have previously taught third, fourth, and sixth grades, but I am excited to be joining the fourth grade team this year.  I love what I do, and most importantly, I like to have fun doing it! 

    When I’m not teaching, I have another full-time job.  My husband, Patrick, and I have two children: Bailee is 11 years old, and is starting sixth grade at Wren Middle School. Nathan is 8 years old, and is in third grade here at Spearman.  When I’m not at school, I will be spending all of my free time with them!  In addition, I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends, running, watching Clemson football, and reading a good book.

    I will say that four the grade is a challenging year, but we're going to have lots of fun together.  We will be covering a lot of material, and as you know, the stakes are high.  Everyone wants to do well, and I have the same expectations for my students.  I am a tough teacher, but it’s only because I want to see the students succeed and grow to become responsible citizens. 

    Please know that I am always available should you have any questions or comments.  You can reach me at school at 947-9787 or via email at onealb@apps.anderson1.org.  Finally, please be sure to sign up to receive my text message updates on Bloomz.

    I look forward to getting to know each of you over the course of the year.  Thank you in advance for your help and support!  This is going to be a great year for all of us!
