Mrs. Nancy Neal
I am so excited to have your child in Band! We are going to have an awesome year making musical memories! I am beginning my 42nd year of teaching!! I taught for ten years at Lugoff-Elgin Middle, where I was selected as Teacher of the Year in 1982. In 1988 I began teaching at Berea High School and Berea Middle School and was selected as Berea Middle's Teacher of the Year in 1998. I was also selected as a Top Ten Teacher of the Year for the 100 plus schools in the School District of Greenville County. I began teaching at CMS in the Fall of 1998 and was named CMS Teacher of the Year in 2004. I am also a member of the South Carolina Band Directors Association, which I served as State Secretary for thirteen years. In addition I am also a member of Phi Beta Mu, a national honorary fraternity for band directors. I was awarded their Outstanding Contributor Award for the state in 1998 and also served as their Secretary/Treasurer for eleven years. I am married to Jimmy Neal, PE Teacher at Pine Tree Hill. We have two children, Callie, the Instructional Technology Specialist at Summerville High School and Zack, a Biology teacher and Football coach at Wando High School. In my "spare time" I enjoy gradening and crafting.
