Teacher of the Year

My name is Garry P. Livingston.  I graduated from South Carolina State University with a BS in Elementary Education and a MS in School Counseling.  I have taught for over 24 years. 

I started out as an 8th grade social studies teacher at Howard Middle School in Orangeburg School District 5 for 2 years.  Then, I taught social studies including science at Hartsville Middle School in Darlington School District for 4 years.  I was at Palmetto Behavioral Health in Florence One Schools doing home based and homebound instruction for 15 years while
 
I provided instruction at the local jails of Darlington and Florence counties.  My destiny called me to be a 5th grade math teacher at Wallace Gregg Elementary School since August of 2019.  The Wallace Gregg Elementary School Staff  voted me as their Teacher of the Year..
 
My belief is that everyone needs to have dreams and meet goals to make those dreams come through.  In all, concentration and execution are equal for a whole program.
