Mrs. Kelly Hawkins

I have been teaching middle school science for 29 years. This is my sixth year teaching at Chapin Middle School after completing ten years at Irmo Middle and 14 years at Mid-Carolina Middle.  

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Biology from Newberry College, a Master's degree in Interdisciplinary Sciences from the University of South Carolina, and a second Master's degree in Educational Leadership/Administration from Winthrop.  I have a Gifted and Talented Educator's endorsement and experience in teaching GT (Honor's) classes in grades 6 through 8.

I live in Newberry County with my husband, son and daughter.  I enjoy teaching science to middle school children as well as spending time with family and many pets.
