My name is Yvonne Strange, and I am a twenty-seven year experienced teacher. I have had the opportunity to teach grades three through eight, in all subject areas. For the past fourteen years, I have specialized in gifted education in math, serving as lead AGP Math teacher for the district. My husband, Coach Strange, is a social studies teacher at Chapin High and coaches defensive line for the varsity and junior varsity teams. I have two sons: Steven who is a senior majoring in Finance at Coastal Carolina University, and Jake, who is a sophomore at Columbia College On-Line program earning his Criminal Justice degree while working at SLED. Horseback riding, gardening, running, and photography are several of my interests. I look forward to teaching three groups of AGP math in the school year 2018-19!
