Welcome to first grade at Midway! My name is Mary Margaret Shirley. I am thrilled to be teaching your child this year! I have been teaching 1st grade for nine years. I earned my bachelor's degree from Clemson University in Early Childhood Education. I earned my master's degree from the University of South Carolina in Language and Literacy. I'm excited to work with you and your child to ensure that his or her first grade year is a great success!
