Ms. Rachel Branum

Hi, my name is Rachel Branum and I am so excited to join the H. E. Corley family! I am a graduate of Lander University where I received my Bachelors in Early Childhood Education as well as my Primary Montessori certification. I am currently studying at St. Catherine University where I will graduate with a Masters of Arts in Montessori Education.
When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family and visiting my niece (3) and nephew (1 week) in Charleston. I am a HUGE Nebraska Cornhuskers fan and I love to read in my free time!

Hi, I’m Angie Carter and I’m thrilled to be a part of the Montessori Magnet at H. E. Corley! I’m a Columbia native and graduate of Richland One schools. I received my AMI Montessori teacher diploma at the primary level from Greenville Montessori Institute in 2018.  My husband, John, and I have been married for 23 years and have three sons who attend schools in our district. We also are parents to two adored pups, Duke and Daisy. In my free time, I enjoy photography, gardening, reading, and all things Montessori. I look forward to meeting and getting to know you and your children.

 

"There are many who hold, as I do, that the most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to the age of six. For that is the time when man's intelligence itself, his greatest implement, is being formed.(The Absorbent Mind, pg. 21_Dr. Maria Montessori)
