Chad Bridges

Mr. Bridges teaches Government, Economics, and U.S. History. Mr. Bridges worked at Kelly Mill Middle School in Blythewood for three years and at the Acdemy for Success for 12 years.  Mr. Bridges grew up in Louisiana and is a graduate of Dutch Fork High School.  He holds a B.A. in History and a MAT in Secondary Education from the University of South Carolina.    His wife teaches Kindergarten at Piney Woods Elementary School and they have three children, Brayden, Brooklyn, and Brynlee.  I love teaching because I want to be a  positive influence and role model for the students I teach. Mr. Bridges also coaches club soccer for South Carolina United and is the Varsity coach for the Chapin girls soccer team.   Mr. Bridges is an avid Gamecock fan and also roots for the New Orleans Saints and Chicago Cubs.  I am grateful for the opportunity to be at Chapin High School and I am proud to be an eagle.    Chapin is where our family works, where we live, and where our children go to school.  It is truly our HOME.
