My name is Ginger Chestnut and I am so excited to be a part of the Bullpup family at Pine Tree Hill! I started my teaching journey in 1995 after graduating with a bachelors degree in elementary education from Francis Marion University. I later received my masters degree in early childhood education from The University of South Carolina. Most recently, I have participated in intensive training to learn the Orton-Gillingham approach of teaching students with learning differences, including dyslexia. I have taught early childhood, elementary, and middle school grades, and I also homeschooled (and graduated) my children. I have participated in the education process from beginning to end!
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Bryan, and we have two beautiful children who are both recently married. We miss our children being home, but we enjoy snuggles from our four-legged fur babies.
Our family moved to Camden about 12 years ago, but I was originally born in Georgia. From the time I was old enough to talk, I always wanted to be a teacher and I taught school to my sister, my stuffed animals, my pets, and anyone else who would listen. I am thrilled to be teaching third grade at Pine Tree Hill, and I consider it a privilege to teach your children.
