Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Susan Dew
My name is Susan Dew. I am a third generation Pee Dee Area educator. My mother was a seventh and eighth grade math teacher in Marion for over thirty years. Her mother was a second grade teacher and principal in a two room schoolhouse in Temperance Hill back in the day when she had to start her own fire on chilly morns to keep her students warm. I attended Francis Marion University, Lesley University, and the Palmetto Montessori Institute. I received my BS in Early Childhood Education, a M.Ed. in Creative Arts, an Ed Specialist degree in Early CHildhood Education and I'm also certified in Primary Montessori Instruction. This is my 26th year teaching either kindergarten or first grade. I adore teaching little people and learn from them as often as I can. I am blessed to have two grown sons. My oldest serves as an officer in the United States Army and my youngest is a second year law student at USC. I have three incredible grandchildren. Thankfully I still have both of my precious parents close by. I am a lifelong learner because of their positive influence and incredible support.
