Mrs. Carol M. Bowling

My name is Carol Bowling and I am THRILLED to have YOUR child in my 4th grade classroom this year!!!  I would like to extend a sincere welcome to your family as we partner in your child's education.

This will be my eighteenth year teaching fourth grade at Wateree Elementary.  Time certainly FLIES when you're having fun!!  My husband, Doug, and I live in Lugoff and have two terrific and active children.  Leanna is a seventh grader at Lugoff-Elgin Middle School and Jay is a fifth grader here at Wateree.

I LOVE teaching!! I have always had the desire to make a positive impact in the lives of young people. I received my degree in Elementary Education, graduating summa cum laude, from Columbia College in 1997.

I take my role as a teacher seriously and hold this profession in very high regard.  My primary goal as an educator is to reach the variety of needs of each student as an individual so that they may become confident, successful, life-long learners.  I achieve my goal by creating a classroom environment that  feels like family, and is safe and warm.  I strive to be knowledgeable in subject matter, and also loving, patient, and fair. I set high expectations, use humor appropriately, and provide new and creative ways in which to learn. I want my students to know that I love them and care about who they become.  Thank you SO much for sharing your child with me.
