Degrees and Certifications:

Christy Steiger

         My name is Christy Steiger and I am thrilled to be entering my seventh year of teaching at Irmo High School! I have a Master of Arts in Secondary English degree from Converse College, and I graduated from Bob Jones University in 2005 with a B.A. in English. I received National Board Certification in 2020, and I also have additional teaching experience in China, where I taught English to college freshmen and sophomores in 2005-2007.

         I am deeply passionate about English literature, writing, and the arts, so the culture here at IHS is a perfect fit for me. Each day I enter the classroom I will be striving to inspire my students through the study of English. I am profoundly invested in their academic success, as well as their futures as active participants and contributors to our society. As they strengthen their literacy and critical thinking skills, students will be empowered to tackle the many challenges they will face in their futures, both professionally and personally. This school year, I will be teaching English 1 honors, English 1 honors escolares, AP literature and composition, IB English A1 HL-2,  as well as creative writing. I’m looking forward to a fantastic year!

         I am available for academic help and/or conferencing after school by appointment. My classroom number is 803-476-3084. The best way to reach me is via my email:
