Mrs. Erin Sawyer's Class

                                        Welcome to Ms. Sawyer's First Grade Class

     Welcome to first grade at Lake City Early Childhood Center (LCECC).  First grade is such an exciting time because your child will be learning so many new things.  I would like to tell you a little about myself.  This is my sixth year in Lake City.  I was born and raised in Hartsville, SC.  I attended Presbyterian College and have a degree in Early Childhood Education.  I worked at Pate Elementary in Darlington for many years teaching Kindergarten, first and second grade.  While at Pate, I earned a Master’s in Education Leadership from Winthrop University.  I then moved to North Hartsville Elementary where I was Curriculum Coordinator for three years.  From there I moved to Charleston and worked as a 4-year-old teacher in a daycare.  I enjoyed my time in the daycare setting but really missed being in a public school setting with children (and parents) who wanted to learn.  Learning is very important to me!
