Teacher of the Year

My name is Latoya Sims. I graduated from Francis Marion University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education and the University of South Carolina with a Masters in Library and Informational Science.  I have been teaching at Wallace Gregg Elementary for the past four years. I taught fifth and sixth grade my first two years at Wallace Gregg, and for the last two years, I have been the media specialist promoting reading and reading and research.

What I like most about teaching and working in education is knowing that I am doing something positive and helping our students grow in knowledge and wisdom.  I believe that learning should be fun and interesting.  Learning is interaction, communication, and discovery. This is what we strive for in our school's media center. Our students are important to us their education, safety, and comfortability is what pushes me to strive to be the best educator that I can.
