Welcome to 1st grade!! My name is Somer Palomba.  This is my sixth year teaching at Blaney Elementary.  I am so excited  for the 2021-22 school year!!. I have a BS degree in Speech Pathology and a Masters in Early Childhood Education.  I am originally from South Carolina, but grew up in Virginia.  Currently, I reside in Elgin with my husband, Anthony, and two children.  My daughter is a freshman at Lander University in the Nursing Program.  My son is a sophmore at Lugoff Elgin High School.   Our family loves football season, Go Patriots!!!!!  My hobbies include spending time with my family, walking, family movie nights, crafts, and home renovations.  We also have two very big fur babies Brady and Bella.  

I am so excited to work with your child this year.  First grade is a crucial time in a students academic development.  Students need teachers and parents to work together to enhance their learning experience and development.  Please feel free to contact me by phone at (803)-438-3241 or by email at  Also check your child's purple folder daily for information and communication.
