Edward Rickwood

I graduated from Coastal Carolina University, and I taught 3rd grade at Lakewood Elementary in Surfside for quite a number of years.  I married into this district in 2002 where I continued to teach 3rd grade at Blaney Elementary.  In 2004, I was named the Kershaw County District Teacher of the Year.  In 2005 I was approached about teaching in the Gifted and Talented Program of Kershaw County.  My home school is now Lugoff Elementary, but I also teach one day a week at Bethune Elementary.

I have many hobbies, and have found ways to get paid to do them.  I coach the Lugoff High School Boys' Varsity Tennis Team.  I play the bass trombone, and have played in many groups all over South Carolina.  I am currently playing with a trombone choir out of Irmo called "Bones of Intention."

My wife teaches Spanish at Lugoff High School... my daughter is in the third grade at Lugoff Elementary... and my son just turned 5 years old, and he will be joining us at Lugoff Elementary next year.
