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. I am looking forward to my twenty-second year of teaching. I have taught three and four year old pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, and first through fifth grade special education.
The 2020-21 school year will be my tenth year teaching kindergarten at Aiken Elementary. My daughter, who also attended Aiken El from kindergarten through fifth grade, will be a seventh grader at Schofield. I also have a six year old son who definitely keeps us on our toes! He is really looking forward to first grade! I have absolutely loved being a part of this school community as a teacher and a parent!
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.
