Mrs. Williams

Your Teacher

My name is Sherry Williams.  I am very excited to be your child’s kindergarten teacher.   This will be my thirty-fifth-year teaching.   My first twenty-four years of teaching were in Virginia.  In Virginia, I taught learning disabilities for fourteen years and kindergarten for ten years.   This will be my eleventh year at Harbison West. I received my undergraduate degree from Glenville State College in West Virginia and my graduate degree from James Madison University.  I live with my husband, JB. and our twenty-nine-year-old daughter, Kayla.  She is an Occupational Therapist Assistant at Lexington Medical Extended Care. Our twenty-two -year-old daughter, Katarina, is at Emory in Atlanta studying to become a nurse practitioner!  We also have a Basset hound, Cookie and a golden retriever, Chip.  

Your Teacher Assistant

Hello, my name is Deana Jowers.  I am really excited to welcome all of our new K5 heroes this year! This will be my sixth year as a kindergarten assistant with Mrs. Williams...we make a great team.  I have been married for 30 years to my wonderful husband Greg who works at Hanners’ State Farm Insurance.  We have three incredible children, Anna (20) is a junior at USC in Accounting, Go Gamecocks!  Bryce (17) is a senior at Chapin High and plays football and basketball, and Avery (16) is a junior at Chapin High School.   We also have a eight year old black Labrador named Deuce, who loves to swim in the lake, and then snore contently ;)). We have lived in the Chapin area for thirteen years.  I can’t wait for another great year here at Harbison West working with our new heroes!  You will be amazed at how much your children learn, grow, and become readers this year! Kindergarten is an amazing time.
