Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Candice Joannides

This is my twelfth year teaching at Oak Pointe Elementary.  During these twelve years, I have had the opportunity to teach both Kindergarten and First Grade and have also had the opportunity to be a Kindergarten to First looping teacher.  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 this district as a teacher.  My husband and I have two children.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, spending time at Edisto Beach and enjoying time with friends.
