Degrees and Certifications:
I am Stacey Chafin. I will be your student’s third grade teacher. I am a product of the Aiken County Public School System. I attended Greendale Elementary, New Ellenton Middle School and graduated from Silver Bluff High School. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education at USCAiken. I am highly qualified through the state of SC. I have been a teacher for 16 years (this will be my 17th year). I have new and fresh ideas that I am excited to implement into our curriculum. I look forward to working with your student and making our year the most successful school year to date.
I am constantly looking for creative ways to motivate students to learn and behave. Therefore, we will be implementing Class Dojo in our classroom this year. You can read all about our positive, online behavior reinforcement system and learn more about how to sign up to receive minute to minute updates on your student’s daily progress.
I want my students to enjoy and look forward to coming to school every day. I have the philosophy that students need to be active learners. In my classroom, they will have the opportunity to move around the room, work with partners, and work in groups. They will also have time to practice independently.
