Mrs. Kelly Petty
Hello, I am Mrs. Kelly Petty and I am a 6th grade Social Studies teacher at Carver. I have a Bachelors of Education +18 from the University of South Carolina, Upstate. I am currently working on my Masters in Literacy at the University of South Carolina, Upstate. I am certified in grades 2-6 Elementary Education and I also have the Gifted and Talented Endorsement. I have been teaching for 13 years in District 7 and I have been at Carver for 10 years. I absolutely love teaching 6th grade social studies and try to make it as exciting as I can for our students. I was awarded Teacher of the Year in 2015-2016.
We begin the year with the study of the River Valley Civilizations and work our way through Greece, Rome, Middle Ages, Renaissance, and through the Explorers. We also focus on World Religions.
I enjoy watching our 6th graders mature throughout the year in areas of organization and responsibility.
