Mrs. Kelly Hawkins

I have been teaching middle school science for 31 years. This is my eighth year teaching at Chapin Middle School after completing ten years at Irmo Middle and 14 years at Mid-Carolina Middle.  

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Biology from Newberry College, a Master's degree in Interdisciplinary Sciences from the University of South Carolina, and a second Master's degree in Educational Leadership/Administration from Winthrop.  I have a Gifted and Talented Educator's endorsement, experience in teaching GT (Honor's) classes in grades 6 through 8, and am National Board Certified.

I live in Newberry County with my husband, son and daughter.  I enjoy everything science related and spending time with family and pets.
