Welcome to Third Grade and 

Ms. Townsend's Class!

‚ÄčMs. Townsend's Class

     I am looking forward to an exciting, successful year with your child!  Thirty-two years ago I came to Jennie Moore as a First Grade teacher.  Then I moved to Second Grade, Third -Fourth Grade Multiage, and finally Third Grade.  I love third grade because the children grow and change into independent learners. It is so much fun to watch this happen!
     I was born and raised in Columbia, S.C., and I received my Early Childhood Bachelor's and Master's +30 degrees at U.S.C. and the Citadel.  My first teaching jobs were in Columbia as a Reading teacher in Richland District 2, Kindergarten teacher, and director of Eastminster Kindergarten. After teaching in Columbia I wanted to go to Europe, and I ended up with a First Grade job in Barranquilla, Colombia, South America. (There are not many openings in Europe, because the American teachers over there just switch countries.)
     I have a daughter, Serena, a son, Walker, and three dogs, Lucy, Lilly, and Lacey. Lucy lives with me, Lilly lives with Serena, and Lacey lives with Walker.  Serena is the head designer for Lauren James Company, and she and Lilly live in Fayetteville, Arkansas.  Walker has his Captain's License.  He is the Dockmaster at Isle of Palms Marina and charters boat tours. 
     Please feel free to come talk with me during the year about your child's progress, questions, or concerns.  We will work together to make your child the best they can be!
