Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Joannides Candice

I am excited to be joining the Purple Martin family for my 15th year of teaching. During these 15 years, I have had the opportunity to teach Kindergarten and First Grade. I am excited to be starting my new position this year as a Reading Interventionist. I graduated from the University of South Carolina in May of 2007 with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education and in August of 2011 with a Master's Degree in Language and Literacy.  I am also a National Board Certified Teacher. 

I am an alumni of Lexington Richland School District 5, having attended Chapin schools for my elementary, middle and high school years and am proud to be back in the Chapin as a teacher.  

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family (my husband and I have two children...a 4 year old and an 8 year old), reading, spending time at Edisto Beach and enjoying time with friends.
