Ms. Lynda Hutto

Hi! I'm Lynda Hutto, SMS's librarian. I am so excited about being a Ram!  Go Rams! 

Professional Experience 

I moved to Aiken County Public Schools from Lexington School District One, where I taught seventh-grade English at a middle school in that district. From 2006-2021, I taught English I, English II, English III, English IV, SAT/ACT Prep, and Creative Writing at North Augusta High School (NAHS).I have been at SMS since 2021 and I am so happy to be a ram!  I am GT endorsed by the State Department of Education and AP Literature Certified. In my time at NAHS, I taught CP, Honors, and GT courses. I obtained a Master of Library and Information Science degree from the University of South Carolina. I am currently earning a doctorate in Educational Leadership from Liberty University. 

Educational Philosophy

I enjoy learning and the real-world application of knowledge! I aim to facilitate and grow an environment in which students love to learn and explore the world around them. I believe that students should be intrinsically motivated to learn, but I also believe that part of my job is to help foster that intrinsic motivation. I believe that students should have the freedom to make choices in their educational process and feel comfortable voicing their opinions and concerns about their educational process. As a Media Specialist, my goal is to provide all school community members with resources, assistance, and technology to create unique and tailored learning experiences that will promote inquiry and global thinking.
