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 23 years ago and this will be my 18th year at Chapin Elementary. I taught Kindergarten for 6 years, 3rd grade for 7 years, and this is my 5th year back in my Kindergarten Home. My husband is a realtor/broker with Home Advantage Realty here in Chapin and our son lives and works in Charleston. We have one crazy energetic dog, who makes us laugh. I enjoy being outside, figuring out word puzzles, cooking, reading, putting puzzles together, watching sports with my family, and spending time with family and friends. AND of course teaching Kindergarten. Kindergartners teach me new things everyday!
