My name is Yvonne Strange, and I am a twenty-eight year experienced teacher. I have had the opportunity to teach grades three through eight, in all subject areas. For the past fifteen years, I have specialized in gifted education in math, having served as lead AGP Math teacher for the district. This year I will have the honor and challenge of working as an adjunct professor at Columbia College with a math strategies course! My husband, Coach Strange, is a social studies teacher at Chapin High. I have two sons: Steven who is a graduate of Coastal Carolina University majoring in Finance, and Jake, who is a junior at Columbia College On-Line program earning his Criminal Justice degree while working at SLED. Horseback riding, gardening, yoga, and photography are several of my interests. I look forward to teaching 5th grade math, AGP math, and science in the school year 2019-20!
