Mrs. Amy Elias

I have been involved in the field of education for the past 28 years.  I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Early Childhood Education and a Master of Education Degree in Early Childhood Special Education from the University of South Carolina.  I have also completed the required coursework to be certified in the following areas:  Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, Special Ed-Learning Disabilities and Special Ed-Early Childhood.  Over the years, I have taught mostly part time in a variety of District Five Schools in various capacities and different age levels, as well as worked as a homebound teacher for special needs students.  I have taught students in grades K-6, however, much of my experience has been working with preschoolers with special needs.  This is my second year teaching in the preschool program, however, I am not new to the school as I worked at HWES from 2006-2011 as an itinerant teacher for the 4K Child Development Program. I am looking forward to working again with our wonderful preschoolers in the Learning to Learn Class.  I will be working with the morning LTL group and sharing the classroom with Mrs. Beth Reily who will be working with the afternoon LTL students. Mrs. Rebecca and Mrs. Tina will also be working in both the am and pm classes.  We are all looking forward to a great year.  We believe that children learn best through play and real life experience and we will strive to provide an environment in which each child can grow and develop to their fullest potential.
