Brandi Hooten

Hello! My name is Brandi Hooten. I will be your child's kindergarten teacher this year. This is my sixth year as an educator and fifth year at SOESMM. I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a BA in Early Childhood Education. I completed a MA in English Language Learning in 2021. I also have several years of experience working with students with autism and graduate coursework completed at Ball State University in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis with an emphasis in Autism. I love learning and continuing my education! 


I have been married to my husband, Jamie, for almost six years. We have a son named Jack Henry, who is three and a daughter named Riggs, who is one. We also have a dog named Tillman. In my free time, I love spending time with my family and going to Clemson football games. Go Tigers! 


Mrs. Gray is the assistant in our classroom. She has a degree in Early Childhood Education and Early Childhood Special Education. This is her first year at SOESMM. We are so blessed to have her in our classroom this year!
