Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Second Grade! My name is Chelsea Gantt and I am looking forward to a great year! I feel so blessed to be joining Wateree Elementary this year. I graduated from Lugoff Elgin High School in 2011 and this community has a very special place in my heart! I received my undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education from the College of Charleston in 2015. I spent my first two years of education teaching at Knightsville Elementary in Summerville, South Carolina. Wanting to be closer to my family, I moved back to the Columbia area last year and taught at Chapin Elementary. I am looking forward to my new journey at Wateree Elementary! I can’t tell you how excited I am to be even closer to home and closer to the community that shaped me into the person and learner I am today.
I love writing, running and spending time with my family! I am passionate about learning and helping children become the people and learners they want to be. I feel blessed with the opportunity to be one of their biggest cheerleaders. My philosophy is to know your child, love your child and to teach your child all that I can. I can’t wait to watch them grow this year!
