Mrs. Carey Fuller

Welcome to another school year! I am excited to begin my seventh year at Lugoff Elementary as the Resource teacher. I have been teaching within the special education field for 21 years. Wow! That time sure has passed quickly. My first six years teaching were spent in Hawaii, on the island of Oahu. Here I taught seventh and eighth grades self-contained through inclusion. The next seven years I taught in Buffalo, New York. Here I was the special education teacher within a pre-kindergarten inclusion classroom. This will be my 9th year teaching in South Carolina. Prior to working in schools, while in college I worked for a non-profit organization providing a variety of services to individuals with disabilities (ages 5-65) and their families for six years. During this time, I had the opportunity to be a Special Olympics coach and be a part of briniging services to Western New York for individuals with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

I have a Bachelor degree in Exceptional Education from the State University of New York College at Buffalo (Buff State) and a Master of Education degree from the University of Phoenix in Teacher Leadership. 

My family keeps me busy. My husband Wally and I enjoy updating our home. My oldest daughter Willow (16) enjoys swimming for Lugoff-Elgin High School. Montana (14) enjoys competing in karate and is working on earning her black belt. My son Harris (12) swims (hopefully for LEHS), is a red belt in karate and a boy scout. 

We have a dog named Douglas, and two cats named Tiger and Tennessee.
