Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Ms. Amber Askew, and I am the new Special Education teacher at Mount Gallant Elementary School. This is my seventh year teaching and I am excited to be working with you and your child. Teaching is an absolute passion of mine. I plan to provide each student a fun and productive year of learning.
In case you would like to know about my background… I am originally from Augusta, GA. It is considered the home of the Masters Golf Tournament. I possess a Bachelor of Science from Troy University and a Master of Science in Exceptional Student Education from Nova Southeastern University. I have experience in teaching students with special needs in public schools, private state facilities, and community settings.
I enjoy spending time with my family. Some of our hobbies include shopping, traveling, and watching movies. Next to God, the most inspirational person in my life is my wonderful 21 year old son. He motivates me to persevere and pursue my goals.
It is my mission to provide every student an effective and stimulating learning environment that encourages each student to recognize their unique abilities and develop a positive relationship with learning.
