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!!
