Partial Magnet Update

One of our top priorities for the 2016-2017 school year is to consistently  integrate the Coastal Environment theme with our school wide curriculum.   Providing children with authentic, hands-on lessons in the classrooms, the science labs, and in the outdoors is key in accomplishing this goal.  As we move into the new school year, I wanted to take a moment to share  a few updates within our partial magnet program:

As some of you may be aware, our wonderful Wet Lab teacher, Ms. Blair, resigned from Charleston County School District earlier this summer.  Ms. Blair will be missed by all, and I know that you will join the staff and I  in wishing her the very best as she embarks upon a new chapter in her life.  

Another change in our partial magnet program is the new allocation of a second partial magnet teaching position.  This addition in staff opens up more opportunities for students and teachers to work in both the Wet Lab and the Discovery Lab.   It also increases opportunities for our students to regularly use the outdoors as a classroom.

I am pleased to announce that Ms. Rhodes (formerly 1st grade) and Ms. Rambo (formerly 5th grade) will be moving into the two partial magnet slots.   They have been working closely together this summer to prepare for a great year of learning.  An important part of their job will be to get students outdoors and using the nature trail, outdoor classroom and the beach.   Both Ms. Rhodes and Ms. Rambo will share the Discovery Lab and the Wet Lab.  At times they will work separately and at other times they will co-teach.  

As you can imagine,  Ms. Rambo and Ms. Rhodes  have been meeting throughout the summer  with teachers and school business partners to prepare for a dynamic year.   In fact, this morning we were out at the beach practicing pulling the seine net.  We caught shrimp, crabs, a variety of fish and three juvenile stingrays!  It is always amazing to get a glimpse of the rich biodiversity  just outside our backdoor!

Please continue to check the website for more updates on our partial magnet program, other new staff members, and much more.  I look forward to seeing everyone in a few short weeks.

Rhodes and Rambo - "the Dynamic Duo"

Our mission: To guide our students to become stewards of the Earth, using science and math to make connections to the world around them and gain a love and respect of the coastal environment. 

Lindsey Rhodes  

Following her Master's in Early Childhood Education, Lindsey graduated with an Education Specialist degree from Piedmont College in Demorest, Georgia. She grew up around the lakes of Northeast Georgia where she gained a love of the outdoors, spending her childhood camping, hiking, and fishing with her family. Lindsey is passionate about making education exciting and bringing innovation to the classroom. She envisions SIES as a place where children discover the joy in exploration, and she aims to inspire her students to become lifelong learners.   



Caroline Rambo

Caroline received her Undergrad in Elementary Education from College of Charleston.  She is currently studying for her Master's in Education in Math and Science. She grew up in Mt. Pleasant where going on the boat and the beach was an everyday activity. Caroline's grandparents lived in the Caribbean for four years during her childhood where she was able to snorkel and dive every summer, exploring even more! She is passionate about empowering students to explore the world around them and is excited to take on this new adventure at SIES!
