8th Grade Science Teacher

Kimberlee Haefelin

 I am retired from teaching high school English.  I taught for 32 years.  I am currently teaching as a long-term substitute for 8th-grade science.  My teaching career has been a joy to my life, and I have seen that teachers have a lot they may learn from students as well as what they teach, and that is part of what I enjoy.  My education includes a high school diploma from Walhalla, SC, a small town near Clemson University.  I earned a BA in English from Winthrop University, and I earned a BA in Journalism from USC in Columbia, SC.  My current hobbies are journaling, publishing poetry, walking my dog, reading books by journalists, and babysitting my granddaughter and grandson whenever I get the chance. Fond memories from teaching include having students win in essay contests, publishing poetry contests, and field trip excursions such as the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Washington, DC.
