•                                     MEET MRS. WADE

              I am LaShana Burris-Wade, and I am beginning my 16th year of teaching! My…Where has the time gone? 

              In my spare time, I enjoy Zumba dancing, baking cupcakes, and reading!  Other interests that I have include writing, listening to music, and watching movies. One of my favorite books is “Scarecrow” by Cynthia Rylant. I can’t fail to mention that I am a S.C. History Fanatic!!

              I am originally from Sharon, SC., but have been living in Clover with my lovely husband-Felix Wade. We’ve been married for seven years and share the love of our God-baby girl, Avorie, who is five years-old. I have one sister, Dr. LaPonya Burris, who is a 4th grade teacher at Hunter Street Elementary School. She is very enthused about beginning this school year, too!

              In 2000, I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Winthrop University. In 2006, I received my Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a specialization in Elementary Education also from Winthrop University. Also During 2006 I obtained my G.T. (Gifted & Talented) Certification from Converse College. Afterward, I graduated from Converse College with my ED.S (Education Specialist) Degree in Curriculum & Instruction in 2010, while completing my National Board Certification. I am an Early Childhood Generalist.  I was named Teacher of the Year during 2010-2011 at Cotton Belt Elementary School in York, SC. In addition, I am a certified CERRA Teacher Mentor and Evaluator through Winthrop University.

              Educating young people and positively shaping their mind is very dear to me. I appreciate you allowing me to be a part of your child’s educational career. Communication is the key for a successful school year. Please do not hesitate to give me a call (803-810-8600), email (lashana.wade@clover.k12.sc.us), or send a note if you have any questions/concerns. I am looking forward to the beginning of another successful school year!  This will be the year that your child will never forget!
