Ms. McCallum

My name is Carson McCallum and I want to thank you for sharing your student with me for this academic year. I come from a family of educators and my love of literature led me from Converse College, where I earned a Bachelors in English, to the classroom! I am a Kershaw County native and am excited to be back and teaching a subject I love! My other areas of interest are traveling, legends and mysteries, MarvelHarry Potter, and Star Wars. Sources of great enjoyment in my life are: my lovable black cats, Puck and Idgie; watching action/adventure movies; and - of course! - reading as many books as I can get my hands on! I look forward to getting to know your student's passions as we work together for their academic success. Please reference the sub-pages on this website for access to Google Classroom and for helpful resources and information about class assignments, activities, projects, presentations, pictures, etc. Also note that each class has a Remind feed for easy updates on what we are doing or might need for class!

  • Just a calendar reminder that Friday, 12/20 is an EARLY DISMISSAL day. Students will leave early from school as the last school day before Winter Break.
