Mrs. Spires



After graduating from Irmo High School, I attended the University of South Carolina where I obtained certification in Early Childhood and Elementary Education.  I continued to grow as a learner when I earned my Masters Degree at Walden University and then went on to complete National Boards certification in Literacy in 2006 and 2016.  I have taught Pre-K through 4th grade in sequential order!


The BEST years of my teaching experience have been since joining the wonderful and talented staff at River Springs Elementary in 2002.  I have taught 17 years in 4th grade and one year in third grade.  The greatest gift that I can give to my students is to model that learning is a lifelong process. IF we are always willing to learn something from our mistakes, our growth is limitless!


During my free time, I enjoy living the country life in Newberry, traveling with my husband and spending time with my 4 grandchildren.
