    Hello and welcome to Miss Byrd's 8th grade science class!

    My goal this year is to help my students be successful learners by giving them help, love, and support as they grow and discover their potential.

    Some of my interests include playing and watching sports (GO HEELS!), hiking, coffee, running, reading, cooking, plants and spending time with my family and friends. I love bringing personality into my classroom and giving my students outlets to express their creativity and uniqueness as well. I look forward to cultivating a positive learning environment where students feel comfortable asking questions and exploring their ideas!

    I fell in love with education at an early age while helping in Sunday School at my church and watching my mom teach. In high school, I discovered a passion for chemistry and other sciences and gained teaching experience through tutoring my peers. After high school, I attended Bob Jones University where I received a Bachelor's of Science degree in Middle School Math and Science Education, and I plan to pursue a master's of education degree in teaching and learning from Clemson University.

    My journey of education continues now as I step into the classroom at Wren Middle School. I am very excited to be a part of the Wren community and to invest in the lives of my students. This will be a year of growth as we learn and develop together!
