Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Evan Wise

Hey there!

My name is Evan Wise. I am a third-year teacher at Chapin Elementary School. I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education. I have professional experience in 3rd and 4th-grade classrooms. I am moving down from fourth grade, so I know exactly what is to come and how to prepare your child!


My passion for teaching began in the first grade when I was placed in reading recovery at Irmo Elementary (Pride in 5!). I spent two years with a reading interventionist working to make sure my reading goals were met. This is where my love of reading began. Since then, I have developed a passion for supporting young learners to meet (and exceed!) their literacy goals in the same way that my goals were supported all those years ago. I am so excited to get to know your child this year as we grow to be life-long learners together. 


In my free time, I am an avid reader of cookbooks, historical fiction, and memoirs. Jodi Piccoult, Elin Hilderbrand, and Colleen Hoover are some of my favorite authors. I am a member of three different book clubs and a member of a local teacher's writers' group! I enjoy line dancing, cooking, and all things Disney. My favorite music artist is Harry Styles and my favorite band is One Direction. I have a dog named Cotton who loves to snack on human food, bask in the sun, and receive copious amounts of belly rubs. Some people have said he is a very spoiled dog...I disagree!
