Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Amy Black
This is my 30th year teaching and my eighth year at IES! I am honored to be a part of this wonderful school family. Kindergarten is a wonderful, exciting place filled with many adventures.
I received a Bachelor’s Degree in education from USC and a Master’s Degree from Lander University. I am a National Board Certified teacher with 30 hours above my Master’s Degree in reading and literacy. I, like my students, am always learning. I believe that I must continue to build upon new ideas to assist my students to become lifelong, independent learners.
I have two sons, a graduate of USC and a student at GTC. I also have 2 furry friends, Sadie and Merlin.
I grew up in Lexington and have worked with children for over 18 years. I have an associate's degree from MTC. I have a wonderful husband and 3 beautiful children, 2 girls and a boy. This is my sixth year at Irmo Elementary.
