Ms. Hope Guffey

Hello! My name is Hope Guffey and I am one of the second grade teachers at Northside Elementary School of the Arts. I graduated from Winthrop University with a Bachelors in Early Childhood Education. I also completed my Masters Degree at Columbia College. I began teaching at Northside through student teaching during my final year of college. I knew then that Northside was a special place! This will be my twelfth year teaching second grade at Northside and I wouldn’t want to call anywhere else home. My husband and I have two children, one of which attends Northside. In my free time, I enjoy visiting my family in Charleston, South Carolina and I love to read a good book on the beach. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to work with the staff and students of Northside Elementary School of the Arts.
