Mrs. Jennifer McMillian

Hello!  I am Jennifer (Coffey) McMillian.  This is my 3rd year teaching at Leavelle and my 19th year teaching (18 years have been in Aiken County).  Previously at Leavelle, I have taught 7th/8th Science and 7th Grade Math.  This year, I am teaching 6th grade Science.  I have taught grades 3-8 in my eighteen years.  I've taught middle school for thirteen years and elementary for five years.  I received my Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in Elementary Education from USC-Aiken and my Master's degree in Natural Science from USC-Columbia.  I am certified and highly qualified to teach elementary education, middle level science, and middle level math.  I am currently obtaining a 2nd Master's in Educational Leadership. 

I have received many grants and honors through my teaching career.  This year, I was humbled to have received LMMS Teacher of the Year and also Aiken County's Honor Court for Teacher of the Year.  In 2012, I was Aiken Middle School's Teacher of the Year and Aiken County's Honor Court Member for the Teacher of the Year Program.  For 5 years, I have been an Aiken County Elementary/Middle Level Lead Mentor Teacher.  I am involved in numerous committees and leadership roles.  I enjoy teaching students about math, science, and the real world through the 3D model.  In addition, I direct the Jr. Beta Club, the Mr. & Miss Leavelle Pageant in conjunction with PTO, and also coordinate social media for the school.  I look forward to all of the opportunities to work with the faculty/staff, parents, and students at Leavelle this year.

I have lived in Aiken for 17 years, but grew up in Clearwater.  I went to Clearwater Elementary, LBC Middle, and Midland Valley High.  I am married and have 12 year old twin girls, Kailyn and Jaden, who attend 7th grade at Leavelle.  I also have 3 step-daughters and 1 step-son.  I enjoy many things including Facebook, selling $5 Paparazzi jewelry on the side, traveling, water sports, volleyball, softball, and spending time with my family and friends.
