1st Grade Teacher
My name is Lani McLean, and I have grown up in Clover, SC. I have an older sister, older brother, twin brother, and a 5 year old nephew. I studied early childhood education at Clemson University where I fell in love with Clemson and teaching. I just recently got my Masters of Education in Divergent Learning from Columbia College.
This upcoming school year will be my 7th year teaching 1st grade. Students in my classroom build a lot on the fundamentals of what it takes to be a leader. They are still learning how to handle their emotions and choices, so we use many opportunities that happen in the classroom to discuss what leaders would do.
What makes me love my job is getting to see how much my students learn over the course of the school year. They leave me at the end of the school year knowing how to read, write, mentally add and subtract, place value, important people in history, and how to be “scientists.” It is so rewarding to know that I helped teach them the basic skills they will use in every grade after 1st.
Some hobbies of mine are reading, working out, cooking, shopping, and watching those Tigers play!
