Mrs. Katie Grant
I have always wanted to be a teacher and am excited to be able to live out my passion. This is my fourth year at Irmo Elementary School teaching third grade. Third grade is the BEST grade and I am excited to be on this journey with your child.
Previously, I have taught 4-year-old preschool, 1st and 2nd grades in both public and private schools. My husband and I have three daughters that have been, or are in, the Irmo schools. #IrmoStrong This year I have a junior attending Lipscomb University, a freshman attending Limestone University, and a freshman at Irmo High School. My husband is a professor at the University of South Carolina (in education also). We joke that he teaches the adults and I teach the littles. I wouldn't have it any other way! We have a Yorkie named Daisy.
I am a lifelong learner myself and just completed my requirements for my Masters +30 in technology. I love to help children find the joy in learning, especially reading, and my favorite thing is to see their "lightbulb moments" happen. The moment when they realize "I can do this!" I am very excited about an amazing year of growing and learning with my new "bees."
