Mr. Travis Spears

I am thrilled to be returning to West Florence High School for my ninth year as an English teacher. As an educator, I believe that education is the key to unlocking one's full potential and achieving success. I am passionate about helping my students grow and develop their skills, knowledge, and critical thinking abilities. I am committed to creating a positive and engaging learning environment where students feel motivated and supported to reach their goals. I am looking forward to another fantastic year at West Florence High School and am eager to see the progress that my students will make throughout the school year.

Prior to becoming a part of the Knight Nation, I was an English Language Arts Instructor at Darlington County Intervention School, Darlington-Lee County Adult Education and Florence-Darlington Technical College.  I have a passion for literature and communication that, I hope, is apparent to students in the classes I lead. 

I grew up in Effingham, SC and am a proud graduate of Hannah-Pamplico High School. I attended the University of South Carolina, Columbia where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Language and Literatures with a minor in secondary education. I also hold a Master's of Education degree in Educational Leadership from Grand Canyon University.
