Welcome to Ms. Shrhonda Hemingway
My name is Shrhonda Hemingway and I am a native of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I received a General Business degree in Business Administration from Francis Marion University. I later received a degree in Early Childhood Education and a Master of Education degree in Educational Leadership, both from Coastal Carolina University. I began my teaching career at Marion Intermediate School, where I taught 3rd grade for six years. It has always been my goal to build lasting relationships and to create a positive learning environment for my students. I am a youth advisor at church, a godmother, and an aunt of 14 nieces and nephews. Although the majority of my life revolves around children, I enjoy shopping, traveling, and spending time with my family. I am extremely grateful for this new opportunity as lead teacher at Britton’s Neck Elementary. I look forward to building more relationships and creating a positive learning environment for the teachers and students of my new Eagles family!
After School Program
Introducing Our New Principal Mrs. Jessica Merritt
It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I become a member of the Britton’s Neck School family and community. I am truly honored and excited to serve you and the community as your new principal. As your principal, it is my intent to maintain focus on learning for both students and staff, and to inspire and encourage others to embrace life and learning and become partners in the learning process. Collectively, we will work to ensure that every child reaches a high level of success. Britton’s Neck Elementary is truly a unique and special school which possesses incredible superpowers, and is committed to equity and excellence. I am certain that with our strength being a collaborative, shared network of individuals who share a common goal, we can work together to ensure that every child will reach a high level of success, which will reveal high ideals and standards of excellence. As I rejoin the Britton’s Neck Elementary School family, I am inspired, motivated and dedicated to cultivate our school by ensuring that it is a caring, safe, and fun place to be. Again, I am honored to work with such amazing students, parents, and teachers who clearly love their school and community.
My educational career began fifteen years ago. My experience in education includes 10 years of teaching, all of which have been in Marion County Schools. I began my teaching career at Rains-Centenary Elementary School as a fifth grade teacher in 2003, and after a district consolidation, began teaching at Britton’s Neck Elementary in 2007. I served as the curriculum facilitator for Britton’s Neck Elementary for two years. In 2015, I served as a math coach at North Vista Elementary School in Florence, South Carolina. I returned to my roots in 2016, and for the past two years served as the assistant principal at Creek Bridge High School.
Again, I am grateful to be part of this dynamic, wonderful staff and school. Together, we can achieve greatness and make a difference in the lives of our students.
