Mrs. Cheryl L. Curtis
Happy Summer! What a wonderful school year 2018-2019 was! I am hoping that everyone gets an opportunity to READ something great this summer. My summer reading list includes all of the S.C. Children's book award nominees. At CCE, the library will be getting another face-lift. This summer, we will be working hard to redecorate and create a welcoming place for our Chukker Creek readers. 2019-2020 is going to be a fantastic school year!
My name is Cheryl Curtis and I currently serve as the Media Specialist/Teacher Librarian at Chukker Creek Elementary. My classroom teaching experience includes: third grade, fourth grade, fifth grade, sixth grade, eighth grade, gifted and talented, and my passion, the library!
Professionally, I am a member of the South Carolina Association of School Librarians where I proudly participate and support the South Carolina Book Award Program. As a past president of the Children's Book Award Committee, it is always very rewarding for me to be able to read and promote wonderful books. Equally exciting is finding out each year which book the "students" vote for as their favorite!
On a personal note, I am a proud product of Aiken County Schools. I obtained a B.A. in Elementary Education from USC-Aiken and a Master's degree in Library and Information Science from USC (Go Cocks!) I married my high school sweet-heart after college and we are the proud parents of two beautiful daughters. My hobbies include: reading, traveling, and spending time with family.
