Mr. Justin Sanders
Welcome & Thank You for Coming to My Page!
So just a little bit about me -- I was born and raised in the Upstate here in South Carolina. I joined the Army when I was 22 and served five years. I was stationed out of Fort Hood, Texas and deployed twice to Iraq. I spent a total of two years there in a combat capacity. I became a sergeant, a team-leader and received specialized leadership training. After serving, I came back to South Carolina and earned a Political Science degree from UofSC. I then began working in non-profits, law firms, and other professional settings. It wasn't fulfilling, so I decided to work manual labor jobs and return to school.
I knew I wanted to become a teacher and continue serving my community, so I got an Associate's degree in History and enrolled in the PACE program. I then began substituting in Greenville County and after a couple years of that, I received this opportunity to become your Eighth Grade Social Studies Teacher. I am so excited for my new career and could not be happier. Teaching middle school aged students is my calling. I hope to give them the desire and drive they will need to find success and fulfillment of their own. I hope that I can live up to the expectations that have been set down before me at this great school. I may be new to Chapin Middle School and Lexington Richland District 5, but I know South Carolina and I know history so I am looking forward to sharing my experience, expertise and knowledge with my new community.
I look forward to the new year and meeting all the great students and parents that make up Chapin Middle. Thank you for all you do to ensure we are all successful in the classroom. If you need anything from me please reach out via email or telephone. I am always willing to do what I can to help.
