Hello! I am glad to meet you and to teach your student this year. My name is Carla Bedenbaugh, and I was born in Spartanburg, where I attended Spartanburg public schools and graduated from Converse College. I earned a Masters degree in Education with a Secondary English teaching certificate. I am certified Gifted and Talented, and I am working on getting the Online Teaching Endorsement.
I currently l live in Lexington, so it takes me 35 minutes to get to Ridge Spring-Monetta Middle School. Don't worry, I have not been late a single time so far. I love English literature, reading and I particularly love middle school students. They are so creative and lively; most of the time they are a joy to teach.
Before I started teaching, I worked in software development in Spartanburg, Columbia, and in Mt. Pleasant, just outside Charleston, SC. A few years ago I decided to finish my working days by doing what I love - teaching students to become accomplished readers and writers.
I believe that every student has a bright future, and with hard work and perseverance each one can make his/her dreams come true.
I have four chilldren (2 are grown and 2 are still at home) and a dog, and enjoy reading, growing flowers, cooking and eating, good movies, Netflix shows, traveling, and swimming. Every year my chidren and I travel to a different place, and I take lots of photographs to share with the students.
I believe (and studies prove) that the most important activity a child can engage in is reading. Reading expands horizons, shows how other people live, and raises lexile levels. I hope your child enjoys the reading and writing that we will be doing as much as I enjoy helping them learn.
