Mrs. Garris

Welcome to kindergarten!


 My name is Sandy Garris.  I am married to Mike (who is a CIS 6th grade science teacher) and have two sons Carl and Ben.  

 I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a BA and Masters in Early Childhood Education. I have been an early childhood educator for 35 years.  I began my career at Dutch Fork ELementary as a five year old kindergarten teacher.  After 13 years, I stayed home for a few years to raise my sons.  I have taught 4K,  first, third, fourth and 5th grades.  My first love will always be kindergarten.  

Together,  with Ms. Stacy Currie, we are committed to providing your five year old with a loving and developmentally sound foundation for a lifetime of learning.  We know that play is a child's most important work, and we will strive to create an environment where your child can grow and thrive while exploring the world around them.
