Miriam Cattell Tolbert

Hi there! Thanks for visiting my webpage. I am thrilled to begin my fifth year teaching 4th grade at Chapin Elementary! I received my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the University of South Carolina in 2018 and am working towards a Master's Degree in Library and Information Science from UofSC. Go Gamecocks! I enjoy traveling, swimming, camping, skiing, and hiking. I got married to my best friend this past summer and we enjoyed our honeymoon in Barbados. We love to volunteer for local rescues and are passionate kitten fosters. We fostered 16 kittens in 2020, 19 kittens in 2021, and two litters so far this year. I also enjoy volunteering as "Weekend Pupsitters" for PAALS, so a few times a year we have a service dog in training on the weekend to play with. We also love to travel together and enjoyed backpacking the Grand Canyon this summer. I also enjoy being a coaching teacher for the University of South Carolina and was a part of the SC Teaching Fellows Program during my undergrad years. I love to learn new things and I look forward to getting to know students as readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, and historians. Please never hesitate to contact me. My email address is
