Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Michele Owens
I am very excited to be teaching 4th grade this year at Ben D. Quinn. What a great place to work! I taught 7th and 8th grade for ten years in Columbia and Sumter, South Carolina. After taking time off while my children were young, I returned to the classroom at HJ MacDonald, teaching there for two years and then at Brinson for seven years. This will be my second year here at BDQ and I am looking forward to another great year.
I graduated from the University of South Carolina, “Go Gamecocks!” and met my husband of 18 years while attending USC. My husband and I have three children who are also huge Gamecock fans. Leverett, jr. (16), Walker (14) and Mary Evans (9). On weekends and during my free time, i can usually be found with my family on a lacrosse field, basketball court, or dance studio.
I love teaching school and the upper elementary grades have been my favorite. It is important to me that my classroom is warm and inviting and that my students are always excited to come to school and especially into my class each day.
