Welcome to Third Grade!
My name is Betsy Conrad and I am very excited to be your teacher this year!
The 2018-2019 school year will be my fourteenth year of teaching. I began my teaching career in 2005, teaching fifth grade at Satchel Ford Elementary School in Columbia, SC. After five years at Satchel Ford, I moved home to Spartanburg and taught fourth grade for three years at Houston Elementary School, here in District Seven. I began teaching at Pine Street at the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year and taught fifth grade for one year before making the move to third grade. This is my fifth year teaching third grade and I know it will be another wonderful year!
I grew up in Spartanburg and attended Pine Street for elementary school. I also attended McCracken, back when it was a junior high school, and I graduated from Spartanburg High School in the year 2000. I attended the University of South Carolina for undergraduate and graduate school, earning a Bachelor of Arts in English in 2004 and a Masters in Elementary Education in 2005. During the 2010-2011 school year, I earned my National Board certification in Elementary Education.
I love teaching, but when I am not at school I enjoy hanging out with my two children, my husband, and our dog, Reuben; hiking, kayaking, gardening, exercising, reading, and listening to music.
I am thrilled to have you as part of my class this year. We are going to have a lot of fun!
