Hello Fabulous Fifth Graders! I am thrilled to be joining the River Springs community this year. I am entering my 13th year teaching after having the privilege of staying at home with my children when they were young. Previously, I taught 5th grade AGP math and science for the last 7 years. Throughout my teaching career, I have had the opportunity to work with a multitude of age groups from preschool through 5th grade. Over the years, I have fallen in love with 10-11 year olds as they are still eager to learn yet they have the ability to critically think and work independently. My students quickly become like one of my own from the minute they step foot into my classroom.
Facts about Mrs. Sansbury:
My husband, David, and I are blessed with 3 children. My oldest, Jacob, is a software engineer in California. Colby is a freshman, at the College of Charleston and Alise is a sophomore at Spring Hill High School.
I graduated from College of Charleston with my degree in elementary education.
I started my teaching career in Charleston and then moved to Colorado where I taught for 2 years. My husband and I enjoyed many outdoor hobbies while in Colorado such as skiing, hiking, and ultimate frisbee. We moved back 'home' to raise our children near family.
I enjoy reading, being on the lake, shopping, outdoor family activities, and spending time with my friends and family and am an avid Gamecock fan! Go GAMECOCKS!
I encourage you to communicate any concerns you may have about your child at any time. A student’s success is greatly improved when we have a strong connection between home and school. I am looking forward to a fabulous 2021-22 school year!
I will do my best to keep my google site updated so you can stay up to date on what we are working on here at school.
