Miss Kiaria Williams


Welcome back to school and welcome to 5th grade! My name is Kiaria Williams, and I am very excited about joining the 5th grade team at Leaphart Elementary. I am thrilled to be your teacher and I am looking forward to a year of learning, lots of fun, and new adventures. My goal is to help students grow into their best self while learning in a fun and safe environment. 


I grew up in West Columbia, South Carolina. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of South Carolina in 2022. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I am currently in the process of obtaining my Masters in Teaching at the University of South Carolina. I grew up dancing and was on a competitive dance team for 11 years. I am also a dance teacher for a studio in Lexington, South Carolina. During my free time, I love to watch movies and spend time with family and friends. 

I am excited about taking this journey with you through 5th grade!
