My name is Hope Meares. The 2018-2019 school year will be my 19th year teaching and my 16th year at Palmetto Elementary. I am very excited to be a part of the 3rd grade team as the Science, STEM and SC History teacher. I am a Project Lead the Way Launch trained teacher. I serve as one of the iTeachers for PES.
I graduated from Clemson University with a degree in Early Childhood Education in 2000. I received my Masters of Education degree from Southern Wesleyan University in May 2009. I received my National Board Certification in the fall of 2008 and renewed my certification in the fall of 2018.
I live in Simpsonville with my husband Darron and my son Jackson, who is an 8th grader. We have a crazy standard poodle named Beau. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time outside with my family, reading, and cheering on the Clemson Tigers!
I look forward to working with you and your child this year as they learn and grow. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns.
