Mrs. Sydney Quarles

Hi Parents,

I cannot wait to learn and grow with your children!  You will get to see your child grow tremendously this year-academically and socially.  

This will be my 12th year teaching at Lake Murray Elementary School.  I taught kindergarten for 11 years and this will be my first year in first grade.  I am blessed to work with amazing students, teachers, and parents.  I grew up in Lexington/ Richland 5 and am so excited that I have been able to come back and teach in this amazing district.  I graduated from the University of South Carolina with an Undergraduate Degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education, and a Master's degree in Language and Literacy.  Go Gamecocks!!  I am also a National Board Certified teacher.  

When I am not at school or at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, shopping, going to church, watching movies, and going out on the lake.  I am married to my best friend, Jordan.  We have two dogs and two little boys.  Our sweet puppies are Marley and Addie Mae.  Jax is five and will be in kindergarten this year and our son Brooks is three.  We enjoy spending our free time together!   

I am looking forward to a great year!!  Let me know if I can help you or your child in any way.
