Mary Keretses

Teaching is my passion and was my first love. I attended Richland County Schools growing up and am a graduate of Dreher High School. After graduation, I attended the University of South Carolina where I majored in Early Childhood Education. Immediately after graduation, I started working on my bachelor's plus 18. I now am gifted/talented endorsed, have completed the course on using agriculture in the classroom setting, and have completed a series of 5 courses to be able to teach ESOL, as well. I have been teaching at Saxe Gotha Elementary since I began my teaching journey as an intern in 2016. This is my second group of second graders and my third year teaching. I cannot imagine spending my days doing anything besides teaching.
