Ms. Santanna Templeton

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I am Santanna Templeton and this will be my third year teaching 2nd grade. 2nd grade is my favorite grade because of the growth that occurs from the beginning of the school year until the end. This will be a great year as things are becoming normal again. I am extremely excited about meeting your child and begin the new year. I have extremely high expectations of your child. I expect them to try their best at everything, have respect, and be willing to reach new heights as I will challenge them to their fullest potential.

I am an educator because I believe that this is what God called me to be. It is my passion and I love learning. I think education is one of the most important things to have in life. I am from Orangeburg, South Carolina. I currently live there with my family and dogs. I am constantly on the go. I received my Bachlor's Degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of South Carolina in 2020. I also have the Gifted and Talented and Read to Succeed Endorsement. Additionally, I will complete my Master's degree in May 2023 from the University of South Carolina Columbia in Language and Literacy. I hope to bring a engaging and fun way to learn different skills in all subjects. I am avid about students becoming stronger readers and mathematicians as these are foundational skills that will carry them on through their lives.

I can't wait to hear more about you and your child. If you have any questions, please email me at or message me on ClassDojo. My hours are from 7:15-3:15. I will respond within school hours and during my planning. If I do not respond the day of, please know I will respond to you as soon as I can.
