Mr. Blaze Gillespie

Kershaw County Family!

I am so excited about being a Camden Bulldog! I have taught Health and Physical Education for 7 years. The 2022-23 school year will be my first year in Kershaw County School District. I am a US Army veteran! "Hooah!" I have been married to my amazing wife, Mary, for 11 years. We have a 10 year-old son, Mason Levi, and a 7 year-old daughter, Savannah Caroline. Both of my children have been in Kershaw County School District at Wateree Elementary since kindergarten. We attend Seacoast Church-Columbia. I coach football and baseball. I love the outdoors and spending as much time as I can with my family. I love teaching lifelong activities and teaching real-world health that students can apply to their lives immediately. I am a lifelong learner who strives to grow every day. I look forward to helping our Camden students succeed. Go Bulldogs!
