Ms. Missy Whiting

Hi, my name is Susan Missy Whiting and I am a 5th grade teacher at York Road Elementary.  I have been teaching for 33 years and have taught Special Education, second, third, fourth and fifth grade.  I can truly say that fifth is my favorite!  I have currently been at York Road since 2008 and work with safety patrol members and the recycling club. I was also selected as the York Road Teacher of the Year for the 2017-2018 school year.

I graduated from Winthrop University and received my undergraduate and Master’s Degree.  When I graduated, I taught a self-contained class at Edgewood Center and stayed there for three years.  The center was closed and I was moved to Sunset Park Elementary, where I still taught a special education class.  After that, I taught for ten years at Belleview Elementary and eventually moved to third grade.  While I was teaching, I was also coaching girls’ basketball at Rock Hill High School.  I coached JV and was the Varsity Assistant for eleven years. 

I have twin daughters that are 23 and live and work in Columbia SC.  We also have two dogs, Miles and Melody. My family likes to take trips to the beach, and explore cities and history around SC. And we love to shop thrift stores!
