Welcome to Pre-Kindergarten at Dutch Fork Elementary!

Dear Families,

We would like to welcome you to the 2021-2022 Pre-Kindergarten school year. 

Ms. Fairbanks was born in Southern California and made her way south to Tennessee and South Carolina with her family. She has lived in South Carolina for ten years now and is a graduate from the University of South Carolina. She loves to be active and play outside. She enjoys running with her dogs Daisy and Chipper and planting flowers. She hopes to bring both teacher interests and your child’s interests into the classroom. She gets married to the love of her life in 2022.

Mrs. Anderson is the assistant teacher in this Pre-K classroom. She grew up in Irmo and raised five children here in South Carolina. She loves to cook, relax at the beach, and visit her amazing grandchildren. Mrs. Anderson is excited to be in the classroom and to watch your students blossom.

Children are so impressionable and very teachable.  It is our desire that we, as families and teachers, work together as a team in order to cultivate the academic, physical, social, and emotional growth of your child so that they can be successful as they proceed throughout their educational journey.

If you should have any questions or concerns throughout the school year, you may contact us by phone at the school: 803-476-3900. We are so excited and look forward to the new school year and the many adventures we will have!



Ms. Elisabeth Fairbanks and Mrs. Teresa Anderson
