Mr. Christopher Skipper

Ahoy, Mateys!!!

It’s so hard to believe it is already time for school to start back!

I am so excited to be your child’s teacher this upcoming school year. This year is going to be full of so many new adventures and learning experiences, I can hardly wait to embark on them with your child. As we set sail and embark on this voyage together in uncharted waters, I am looking forward to teaching your child and seeing the growth he or she makes. Before our vessel set sails, I would like to introduce my team and myself, along with sharing some information about our families with your family.

I was born and raised in Conway, South Carolina. I attended Grand Canyon University, where I studied elementary and special education. I then graduated from Frances Marion University with a Master of Education in Learning Disabilities. In addition, I graduated from Coastal Carolina University with a second Master of Education in Educational Leadership and Administration. I have always dreamed of becoming a teacher and thoroughly enjoy teaching! I was blessed to do my student teaching at Britton’s Neck Elementary four years ago and was beyond ecstatic when a teaching position presented itself to me at this wonderful school, where I taught for three years. This is my second year at the Academy of Early Learning and I truly could not think of another school I rather teach at! In my free time I enjoy reading, camping, spending time with family, and friends. I have been married for thirteen years to my best friend, Jessica. She also teaches special education. I also enjoy attending church and participate in various church and youth activities. 

I have two great assistants, who will be working very closely with your child.  Mrs. Queen Hughes and Mrs. Miriam Taylor. Mrs. Hughes is married, has four children and five grandchildren. Mrs. Taylor is married, has two children and two grandchildren. These two ladies have worked in the pre-school education field for many years and will be a huge help to your child and me this coming year.  They have huge hearts and love to see students rise above the challenges they each face daily. 

I am excited for what this year holds and cannot wait to get this school year off to great sailing. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s individualized education plan or academics, please feel free to contact me. You can call me at school (843-464-3725), send an email (cskipper@marion.k12.sc.us), or you are welcome to send a note in.

Thank you for your continued support of your child’s education.

Mr. Christopher Skipper, M. Ed.
