Mrs. Amelia Watts

I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in Early Childhood Education in 1991.   I have been teaching for 32 years and this is my sixth year with Marion County School District.  I have taught 4th grade, 1st grade, 5K and most of my years teaching have been in 4K.  I love teaching because I love children!  It is rewarding to watch them learn and grow.  Mrs. Gause and I have been working together for 5 years.  She is a graduate of Florence-Darlington Technical College with an Associate’s Degree in Applied Science Human Services/Early Childhood Option.  She has worked with preschool children for 15 years and this is her fifth with Marion County School District.  Working with children is her passion.  She always knew she wanted to teach young children.
