Ms. Amaris Bolyard

All About Ms. Bolyard!!

I am originally from Boiling Springs, SC, where I graduated from Boiling Springs High School. I earned a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Mathematics from the University of South Carolina at Spartanburg (now USC-Upstate). I hold certifications in Elementary Education, Middle School Math, and Middle School Social Studies. I am also endorsed to teach Gifted and Talented students. I am beginning my 20th year of teaching, my 4th with Rock Hill Schools and 3rd here at the Trail. I live in Rock Hill with my husband, Jeff, and our American Staffordshire Terrier, Maverick. My hobbies include reading, painting, axe throwing, traveling, playing pool, and spending time with my family in Spartanburg. I'm a huge Gamecock fan and you can find me cheering for my team every Saturday during the football season!
What is your reason WHY?
I knew from a very early age that teaching was my passion. I want to make each of my students feel as special and as loved as my 3rd grade teacher made me feel. Each student is unique and should be encouraged to grow in their own individual ways, just as Mrs. McLean did for me.
