Mrs. Amy Elias

I have been involved in the field of education for the past 27 years.  I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Early Childhood Education and a Master of Education Degree in Early Childhood Special Education from the University of South Carolina.  I have also completed the required coursework to be certified in the following areas:  Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, Special Ed-Learning Disabilities and Special Ed-Early Childhood.  Over the years, I have taught mostly part time in a variety of District Five Schools in various different capacities and age levels as well as working as a homebound teacher for special needs students in our district.  I have taught students in grades K-6, however, much of my experience has been working with preschoolers with special needs.  Although this is my first year teaching 3's at HWES, I am not entirely new to the school as I worked at HWES from 2006-2011 as an itinerant teacher for the 4K Child Development Program.   I believe that children learn best through play and real life experience and I hope to provide an environment in which each child can grow and develop to their fullest potential.
