Mr. Michael Small

Greetings!  My name is Michael Small, Jr., and I am a native of Cheraw, South Carolina.  I have a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education degree with an early childhood add-on.  I have dual certification in early childhood education and elementary education.  This is my third year teaching, and I have taught third grade math and science and fourth grade math and science.  This year, I am teaching fifth grade.  

Nothing brings more joy to my life than molding and shaping the minds of our young people.  Nothing gives me more fuel to wake up each morning than to know that I am someone's hero.  A wise person once told me that if you choose a career you love, you will never have to work a day in your life, and that is exactly how I feel.  Other than teaching and all that it entails, I love to sing and dance.  I make it my duty to sing and dance daily, because music is food for the soul and a universal language.

I am looking forward to an amazing, fun-filled year of learning and growing, and I cannot wait to meet my fifth graders.
