Scottie Ard

My name is Scottie Ard, and this will be my ninth year teaching and my third year at York Road. I have taught 5th grade my entire teaching career, so I may be a little biased when I say 5th grade is the very best! I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in Elementary Education in 2015 and started my career in the Rock Hill School District the same year. My husband Landon and I have been married for 5 years. We have a 4-month-old son named Charlie, and a dog named Birdie. I grew up going to Rock Hill schools for elementary, middle, and high school. I love spending time with family and friends, especially if we're at the beach! I am looking forward to an awesome school year full of challenges, growth, and learning.
