Ms. Mary Sawyer
I am originally from Detroit, MI. I have spent the majority of my life in Detroit, going to school, working, and teaching. I worked for 2 years teaching at Life Skills Centers, an alternative school for at-risk youth. It was both a challenging and extremely rewarding experience. I learned very early in my teaching career that the moments we have with our students is precious and should never be wasted at any time. I have also learned that some of the most "teachable" moments we have are the ones we never expect.
Family is very important to me and I try to spend time keeping in touch with my family back home. I think that our families are what keeps us motivated, grounded, and yet always striving to do out best. My family taught me that a strong work ethic can lead you to places and things you never even thought possible. I am grateful to have such support and hope to offer that same feeling to my students as we grow and learn together.
I have been in South Carolina for 10 years now. I have spent 4 years at Blythewood High School, and 4 years at Westwood High School and I have enjoyed my time there. I am glad to be back at Camden High School for a fourth year.
