Getting to Know Mrs. Buckner
I began my teaching career in the upstate of South Carolina in 2006, but found a home in the Chapin cluster shortly thereafter. I received my bachelor's degree from USC Upstate and my master's degree from Columbia College. Not only am I an educator, but I'm also a wife and a mother. I have three beautiful boys, Emory, Gavin, & Weston. In my free time, I enjoy playing with my kids, reading stories to them, and showing them how to create arts and crafts. I am very excited to work with you this year!
About our Class
This year we will be exploring our language through reading and writing. My goal is for students to be enthusiastic readers and writers. This course will allow students to read and react to a variety of literature as well as develop their writing, research and communication skills. Please see the course syllabus for a detailed description. Feel free to visit the site daily to keep abreast of important dates. If there are any questions or concerns, email is the quickest and most efficient way to communicate with me. I check my messages daily, but please give me up to 48 hours to address your concerns and respond. Again, I am excited about working with you and I am looking forward to a great year at Chapin Intermediate School!
