Mrs. Farrah Owens

I am Farrah Woodberry Owens and I am honored to serve as principal of the Academy of Early Learning for the 2022-2023 school year. I am a native of Britton’s Neck, South Carolina, where I continue to reside with my husband. This is my 24th year in public school education and they have all been with the Marion County School District. I am proud to be the oldest of four siblings who are all public school educators.

My first priority will be to continue to keep students safe while providing a nurturing and caring learning environment. One of our focuses is to provide social-emotional learning support for students as we continue to deal with COVID-19. We will also focus on the foundational literacy skills needed to help students become prolific readers and writers.

With the collaboration and cooperation of students, parents, community members, faculty, and staff, this will be a remarkable and exciting year at the Academy of Early Learning.
