My name is Hope Meares. The 2019-2020 school year will be my 20th year teaching and my 17th year at Palmetto Elementary. 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 am currently working on my Masters Degree in Administration.
I live in Simpsonville with my husband Darron and my son Jackson, who is an 9th grader. We have a dog named Beau. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and cheering on the Clemson Tigers!
