Ms. Margo McDowell Gore

I thank everyone who worked so hard in Spring 2020 to get through an unprecedented change of events.  Students, you adjusted well by completing your work at home and fulfilling that which was expected of you.  I truly enjoyed teaching each one of you this year.  Seventh grade will be remembered as an unusual year.  But I hope you have many fond memories, too.  I wish each of you a safe and enjoyable summer.  

Take Care and Stay Well!   
Mrs. Gore
I will continue to teach seventh grade Science for the 2020-2021 school year.  I serve as the science department chairperson, science fair coordinator and mentor/advisor to the Kennedy Future City and Engineering Club.  My journey as an educator in Aiken County Public Schools spans over 22 years at the middle and elementary levels. I am a National Board Certified teacher (Early Adolescence Science) with a Bachelor’s degree in Education from the University of South Carolina Aiken; a Master’s degree in Divergent Learning from Columbia College; and a Master’s degree in Educational Administration from the University of South Carolina.  I am currently pursuing a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership and Policies at the University of South Carolina.

My ultimate goal for my students is to ensure that they develop an intrinsic respect for science as they grow academically, socially and internally.
