Jade Lavender

Hi! My name is Jade Lavender and I teach the Kindergarten, 1st & 2nd grade Unique Pathways 1 class. I was born & raised in Rock Hill and attended all of my years of school in Rock Hill School District, graduating from Rock Hill High School in 2013. I then went on to college and graduated from Winthrop University (Go Eagles!) in May 2018 so this will be my fifth year of teaching!

When I am not at school, you can find me at the beach, spending time with my very big family, exploring with my husband Andy, daughter Rowan & dog Latti, or cheering on the gamecocks in Williams-Brice Stadium on Saturdays in the fall!

I am a huge advocate for children and am so fortunate that I found my passion of working with individuals with disabilities so early on in life. I am beyond blessed to be living out my dreams at one of the best schools around! I am so excited for this school year and can't wait to see what my fifth year has in store for my students and me!
