Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Richard McCabe
My name is Richard McCabe, and I teach English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) in Florence One Schools. Teaching is my second career. After working for almost two decades in the oil and convenience store industry, I returned to school to become a teacher. I graduated from Francis Marion University in December 2007 with a Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary Education. In 2008, I completed classes to add my ESOL certification. I have been teaching English Learners and working with their classroom teachers in F1S for over ten years now. Helping students to acquire the English language while also learning the required content for their grade level is a very rewarding experience.
