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-six-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 twelfth 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. We have two daughters.  Kayla is an Occupational Therapist Assistant at Lexington Medical Extended Care. She will be getting married in October.  Our twenty-three -year-old daughter, Katarina, is at Emory in Atlanta studying to become a nurse practitioner! 

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 seventh year as a kindergarten assistant with Mrs. Williams...we make a great team.  I have been married for 31 years to my wonderful husband Greg who works at Hanners’ State Farm Insurance.  We have three incredible children, Anna (21) is a senior at USC in Accounting, Go Gamecocks!  Bryce (18) is a freshman at Midlands Tech, studying forensic science, and Avery (17) is a senior at Chapin High School.   We also have an eight year old black Labrador named Deuce, who loves to swim in the lake, and then snore contently ;)). We have lived in the Chapin/Irmo area for fourteen years.  I cannot 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! Fingers crossed, for a bright, safe, and productive school year!  Kindergarten is an amazing time.
