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.

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 eigth year as a kindergarten assistant with Mrs. Williams...we make a great team.  I have been married for 32 years to my wonderful husband Greg who works at Hanners’ State Farm Insurance.  We have three incredible children. Our oldest Anna (22) received her degree in accounting from USC, and will be working at an accounting firm in Charleston while she studies for her CPA. Our son Bryce (19) is studying Criminal Justice at MTC and will transfer to USC next year.  Our youngest daughter Avery (18) will be a freshman at Trident Tech in Charleston.  We also have a ten 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 fifteen 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!   Kindergarten is an amazing time!!!
