Mrs. Spires- 4th Grade



After graduating from Irmo High School, I attended the University of South Carolina where I obtained certification in Early Childhood and Elementary Education.  I earned a Master's Degree in Science at Walden University and completed National Board Certification in Literacy in 2006 and 2016.  

Over the last THIRTY YEARS, I have taught Pre-K through 4th grade in sequential order! The BEST years of my teaching experience have been working alongside the talented staff in District 5. I feel blessed to have served so many wonderful families in the traditional setting at River Springs Elementary from 2002-2020. For the past three years, it has been so exciting to be a part of the adventurous team of pioneers in the FIVE program.  We are committed to offering families the choice of a flexible and innovative approach to learning in the virtual setting.  I am passionate about teaching in this format. I strive to find new tools and strategies to help my students stay engaged and excited about their growth and development.  

During my free time, I am a country girl who is fascinated with gardening.  When we are not hosting big family dinners, my husband and I love traveling through the Blue Ridge Parkway and photographing nature.
