Hello!

I began my teaching career five years ago after relocating to my home on the east coast. In addition to this exciting adventure in education, I continue to work on the west coast as a screenwriter for film and television.  I am teaching Freshman Academy English I and English II Honors in the new school year.

For tips on honing your writing skills throughout the school year, please, keep a journal!  Writing on a daily basis for pleasure allows one to maintain creative writing skills while recognizing moods, interests, and academic growth through a pleasureable, unstructured median.

The tutoring schedule will be the second half of Power Hour.  Also, tutoring will be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:30am - 8:00am.

I'm looking forward to an exciting new year with you!

Welcome!

I am so excited about my 4th year at South Aiken High School and all the wonderful learning experience ahead for us all in English I and IV. Over the course of my 23 years in education, I have taught English I-IV at both the college prep and honors level. Outside of school I am the proud mother of 4 and the even prouder grandmother of 3. I am looking forward to a great year of learning.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you have at gqueen@acpsd.net.

Welcome! 

My family and I have lived in Aiken County for over 20 years and we love it as much today and we did when we moved here.  Not only am I a teacher in this system but we have had three children graduate from Aiken Public Schools.  This coming year will be my 19th year at South Aiken High School and I am looking forward to it.  I am tentatively teaching FA-English 1 Honors, FA-English 2 Honors, and Yearbook. 

I am looking forward to a little down time this summer and getting ready for the 2019-2020 school year!  I'll see you all on Augusta 19, 2019!

Tutoring is available daily during the second half of Power Hour and from 7:30 - 8:00 a.m. Monday and Wednesday. My email is shamlin@acpsd.net.
