Mrs. Cathy Drees
I am a true Carolina Girl. I was born in Columbia, SC. I am a graduate of Columbia College where I received my BA in Early Childhood. I received my Masters Degree in Education from the University of South Carolina. My husband and I moved to Elgin in 1988 where I began my long relationship with Blaney Elementary School. My children began their childhood education at Blaney Elementary School. They went on to become college graduates who now enjoy successful careers. I began teaching at Blaney Elementary in 1992. I have a passion to help children learn to read. I receive great joy when I see the contribution I have made by helping children build a foundation for their future.
