Welcome to 3rd grade! My name is Andrea Stowers and I am very excited for the opportunity to "Soar With a New Mindset" in third grade at Varennes! This year we will learn how to think with a growth mindset which means that with persistence, confidence, and willingness to learn; anything is possible! I graduated from The University of South Carolina with my Bachelor’s Degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice and Anderson University with my Master Arts in Teaching. I was born and raised in Anderson County. I moved to Columbia for 4 years, then returned to my hometown. I am blessed to have a wonderful husband, Marshall and two phenomenal children Santana and Madison! I am a huge Gamecock and Redskins fan and love to show my pride by wearing garnet and black or maroon and gold whenever I get the chance. On the weekends you will find me at a Carolina game or parked in front of the television cheering for my Gamecocks or Redskins.
Teaching is my passion and I feel very lucky to get to do what I love every day. It is exciting to see students learn and grow in academic and social skills. I am a huge advocate of teamwork and cooperative learning. I want all students to be encouraged and supported by one another. In my classroom, we are all part of the same team!
