Mr. Michael Darnell
My name is Mr. Michael Darnell. This is my second year at Mary H. Wright Elementary School and I am super excited to return. I will be teaching second grade. It is my belief that the best and most important part of my job is the relationships that I build with my students. My goal this year is to provide a safe and motivating environment where students feel valued, supported, and encourgaed to reach for the stars.
I graduated from Limestone College in 2003 with a degree in Business Management. In 2014 I left the business world and went back to school at the University of South Carolina, Upstate where I earned my degree in Elementary Education. I completed my student teaching at Boling Springs Intermediate School (5th grade). I came to MHW last year and taught 3rd grade.
I have lived in the Spartanburg area for 5 years and love it! I live with my three cats, Dexter, Wilson, and Henri. When I am not in school, I enjoy spending time with friends. I like to read, cook, bake, play trivia, hike and swim. My favorite author is Dr. Seuss!!
