    Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! We are excited to have the opportunity to teach your child and work in partnership with you this year! Throughout the course of this year, your child is sure to embark on many new adventures. Within these adventures, we hope to create memories you and your child will look back on years down the road. We feel fortunate to be the first step your family will experience in the formal education of your child!

    This is my first year at South Fant and I could not be more ecstatic to teach children at a school that lays the framework for their educational paths. I am a product of Anderson School District Five and upon graduating with an Associate’s Degree in Arts from Tri-County Technical College and a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from Clemson University in 2011, I returned to District Five where I began my career in education teaching at the Anderson Adult Education Center. It is very exciting to me to watch children learn through discovery, play, and exploration. I have a sincere passion to see children succeed and I look forward to working alongside you this year. Always remember you are your child’s first teacher!

    I just celebrated my 7th year wedding anniversary with my awesome and loving husband, Philip. Together we have three children. Two sons; Elan Kabe who just turned five and Oren Dray who is two. Our sweet baby girl, Neva Lees, just turned 9 months old. We have two shih-tzu 4-legged family members- a boy named Poo Ki and a girl named Winslet Harlow. We love spending time together as a family outdoors, gardening, looking for bugs, searching the sky for airplanes, and watching bunnies. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, crafting, sewing, repurposing, and watching college football-GO TIGERS!!


    Ms. Heather Powell is my assistant and this is also her first year at South Fant. Ms. Powell earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from the University of South Carolina at Aiken and has a passion for teaching children of all ages and backgrounds. She enjoys photography, singing, reading, drawing, and painting and we are overjoyed to have her talents, skills, and abilities in our classroom this year!


    We stand firm in our belief that your child has the opportunity to reach his/her greatest potential this year. We will set several small attainable goals throughout the year so that your child will experience many successes! However, this can only be done with your support. Our goal is to keep the lines of communication open at all times. We look forward to an absolutely fantastic year with you and your child!


    Let's make this year amazing for these little one's!
