Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Marcia Bartelle Chestnut. I am a native of Florence, SC, where I attended the public schools of Theodore Lester Elementary, Williams Middle, and Wilson High graduating in the class of 1989. After graduating high school, I attended South Carolina State University, where I obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary. I also have a Masters in Elementary and Middle School Administration. This year makes twenty-three (23) years that I have been in education. I have taught 5th grade, 6th grade, been a reading coach, and currently serve as writing coach. All of these years have been served at Dewey L. Carter Elementary School. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, going to church, and traveling.
Teaching has always been a passion of mine! I have a love for learning and strive to help students enjoy learning as much as I do. My goal as a teacher is to create a safe, loving, fun, and disciplined classroom for my students. I see each child individually, and will work hard to ensure they reach their potential and enjoy their year the writing lab. I will strive to be an educator who loves each child as they walk through the door each day, and give them not only an education, but a passion to learn.
