Ms. Keely Lillard

Welcome to where it all BEGINS...

My name is Keely Lillard.  This is my 26th year teaching.  I did my student teaching at Byrd Elementary in 5-K and 2nd grade.  I graduated with a degree in Early Childhood Education with certification to teach preschool through 8th grade.  I taught 6th grade at Aiken Middle School.  Then moved to North Aiken to teach 5th grade, 3rd grade and 1st grade.  Following my first year of teaching 1st grade, I was offered the opportunity to return to Byrd Elementary.  I was thrilled and eagerly joined the 1st grade team at Byrd and worked with them for 8 AWESOME years.  During this time I earned my Masters Degree from Lesley University.  When the 4-K position became available at Byrd, I decided to give it a try and I still enjoy the excitement in 4-K today!! 

Although I enjoy working other people's children, I have been blessed with 3 of my own.  Gavin (20), Julia Grace (15) and Jaxon (12) have had the honor of attending Byrd Elementary.  The town of Graniteville stole my heart 23 years ago when I first taught at Byrd and the people in the area have continued to help keep it that way!!

It takes the effort of us, the parents and the children to make this a successful journey!! If you need to contact me, please do not hesitate to do so.
