Where ALL Students Can Learn
Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Christin M. Bradshaw, M.Ed.
Since childhood, teaching has been a goal of mine; I truly enjoy it and look forward to everyday with my students. I am a graduate of Lexington School District One.
I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education in English at Francis Marion University. While teaching for the Army Preparatory School (APS), I earned my Master’s degree in Divergent Learning from Columbia College.
Directly after student teaching, I completed my first year of teaching for Florence School District One as a middle school E/LA teacher. I also taught for two years at Kingstree Junior High School in Williamsburg County. Upon my return to Columbia, SC, I taught for two years in Richland School District one, (again as a middle school E/LA teacher). Then my professional route changed a bit and I taught at the Army Preparatory School as a GED instructor for the Army. Before becoming the high school English teacher here at the Academy For Success I also taught at Camp Long, a wilderness camp for DJJ. No matter where I have worked, I enjoyed reaching the minds of my students to show them how to enhance and expand on their own abilities to become better writers, readers, and future learners.
My personal philosophy is: We should all strive to leave the world a little better than the way we found it. If we all do this – the world will be a better place.
In my spare time I enjoy long-distance canoeing. I have paddled/canoed the Cowassee Basin (Congaree, Wateree, and Santee rivers), Lower Saluda, Lake Jocassee, some of the Broad River, in addition to many other places. I am also one of few that helps keep Congaree Creek cleared and canoe navigable.
