Mrs. Angela Clifford
Welcome to kindergarten! I am looking forward to an exciting year after a restful summer break! I am anxious to get to know you and your child. I would like you to get to know me, also.
I graduated from the University of South Carolina Aiken with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Early Childhood Education in 1998. After graduation, I moved to Chicago, Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a Master in Education Degree in Instructional Leadership in 2003 and a PhD in Educational Psychology in 2010. This year is my twenty-first year of teaching. I have taught three and four year old pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, and first through fifth grade special education.
This year is my ninth year teaching kindergarten at Aiken Elementary. My daughter is in sixth grade at Aiken Intermediate School after attending Aiken El from kindergarten through fifth grade. I have absolutely loved being a part of this school community as a teacher and a parent! I also have a five year old son who definitely keeps us on our toes! He is in kindergarten at Aiken El, so I'm a kindergarten parent right along with you!
I believe that school should be an exciting part of a child’s life. I will strive to foster an excitement for learning in all of my students.
