Mrs. Sydney Quarles
Dear LMES Parents,
I cannot wait to learn and grow with your children this year! Kindergarten is such an amazing grade! You will get to see your child grow tremendously this year-academically and socially!
This will be my ninth year teaching at Lake Murray Elementary School. I am blessed to work with amazing students and teachers. 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 with a Master's degree in Language and Literacy. Go Gamecocks!! I am also a National Board Certified teacher.
I decided that I wanted to be a teacher when I was in third grade. My third grade teacher made such an impact on my life and I knew from then on that this was the profession for me! I have worked with young children for most of my life.
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 got married in July 2014 to my best friend, Jordan! We now have two dogs and two little boys. Our sweet puppy Marley is 6 years old, Addie Mae is 4, our son, Jax, is two and Brooks will be one in December. 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.
