Welcome to our third grade page! I'm excited to be here and I know that you are too! Third grade is full of exciting South Carolina history and science adventures.

My name is Margaret Nickerson and I am originally from Irmo, SC. I actually went to Irmo Elementary as a child! I graduated from Clemson University with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I received my Master’s Degree in Language and Literacy from the University of South Carolina. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher in Literacy. I have taught 4K EXCEL, first, second, and third grade at Irmo Elementary. This is my 12th year as an educator! I previously served as the Teacher Technology Leader for two years at Irmo Elementary, presented at national conferences, completed two years of SCRI training, Art Infused Inquiry Based Learning training, served as the Teacher of the Year my fourth year at Irmo Elementary, and last year was the Columbia Distinguished Teacher of Literacy.
I absolutely love my career as an educator and I am always learning and growing. I also love to talk about education and welcome ANY questions parents may have. Parents are their child's first teachers and I love working together as much as possible! We are all on the same team!
I have two wild boys of my own. Because of them I have become an expert on dinosaurs, sports, and anything creepy crawly. My husband is from Florida and is a huge Gator fan...I pull for Clemson. :)
