Mrs. Maria Timmerman
Hi, and welcome to our page. Here is some information about my family and me. I grew up in Chapin and graduated from Chapin High School. I attended Newberry College where I received my degree in Early Childhood/ Elementary Education. My husband also graduated from Chapin and Newberry College. His first job took us to Barnwell,SC where I taught 1st grade for several years before staying home for quite a few years with our children. We moved to the Irmo area and I returned to teaching when our boys were in school. I taught 1st grade and Kindergarten at River Springs Elementary. We moved back to Chapin about 22 years ago and this will be my 16th year at Chapin Elementary. I taught Kindergarten for 6 years, 3rd grade for 7 years, and this is my third year back in my Kindergarten Home. My husband is a realtor with Coldwell Banker here in Chapin and our son lives and works in Chapin. We have one crazy energetic dog, who makes us laugh. I enjoy being outside, going to the beach, cooking, reading, watching sports with my family, and spending time with family and friends.
