Degrees and Certifications:
Hello and welcome! My name is Margaret Shurley and I am the high school Social Studies teacher at Blue Eagle Academy. I was born and raised in Rock Hill but spent 12 years working for American Airlines. During this time I lived in Washington, D.C; Cleveland, Ohio; Boston, Massachusetts; and Chicago, Illinois. Living and working with diverse groups of people truly broadened my outlook on life and inspired my love of travel.
I returned to Rock Hill in 1996 to be closer to family and raise my two young sons. In my spare time I enjoy traveling, painting, riding horses, watching football, and spending time with my family.
I began teaching at Blue Eagle 4 years ago and can honestly say that it has been a perfect fit for me. I love teaching and have found that every day is a brand new day to make a difference in the life of a student and in turn, they have made an impact on me as well.
I graduated from Winthrop University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in both History and Political Science.
