Dear First Grade Parent,
My name is Mr. McClellan and I have the pleasure of teaching your child. Teaching is a second career for me. I spent many years in sales and management before discovering my passion for teaching. Though I am older than most first year teachers, I am just as creative and enthusiastic as my younger colleagues. Just as I am new to the teaching profession, I also just arrived in South Carolina. Originally from Pennsylvania, I decided that I know longer wanted to shovel snow and relocated to Lake City in July. As a new resident, I feel very welcome here. As a new teacher, I am receiving support from the staff at Hemingway Elementary. As your child’s teacher, I look forward to meeting you and working with you to ensure your child receives a great education.
