I am Mr. Maness and this is my 5th year of teaching. Previously, I taught four years in the great state of Tennessee (Go Vols!). My wife and I moved here to Aiken, SC in July of 2019. I have previously taught 4th, 7th, and 8th grade math, and 5th grade science and social studies.
Outside of school I enjoy running, biking, going to concerts, watching sports, and enjoying the outdoors.
I have been married to my wife, Brandie, for 13 years. We do not have any children, but we have 4 dogs and three cats. We were just reduced to 7 as we previously had 8, but lost one of our dogs to cancer. He is on my mind and missed every day.
I enjoy teaching and feel I was brought here for a reason. I'm not sure of that reason, but that is how I feel. Under me, students will learn how to be accountable, reflective, and respectful. Students have to have these attributes before they can learn succeed in school and in the classroom.
I have found out that we never know what life may have in store. I don't know what the future holds, but right now the road has led me to Schofield Middle School. This will be a great opportunity and we will have a great year.
