Meet the Teacher

I graduated from South Carolina State University.  I have my Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education.  I have been teaching in Charleston County Schools since August of 1997.  My class motto…Take your time and do YOUR best!

My personal drive is that


 “I love to teach children to love to learn
      Awards Day

                                                   Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.



I would like to welcome the most important person in our class, your child!  My name is Mrs. Waddy-Garland and I am being assisted by Mrs. J. Findley.  We will be working with your child for the 2016-2017 school year.  I consider myself to be a fun yet firm teacher, and learning should be fun but with fun also comes responsibilities.  Working with parents is an essential component of the educational process.  Parents and teachers share a common goal to help each child develop to his or her fullest potential.  When parents and teachers work together from their different perspectives for a common goal, children benefit.    Parent/Teacher conferences will be held at least once each nine-week period.  Each day, I look forward to working with you and your child in having a very productive and successful school year here at E.B.
