Abbie Whitaker Pre-K Teacher Photograph

I was born in Gray, Georgia.  After high school, I attended the University of Georgia and got a Bachelors degree in wildlife.  I became an environmental educator for 2 years in Middle Georgia before going back to the University of Georgia to get my Masters degree in Early Childhood Education.  After completing that degree, my husband and I moved to Beaufort County in 2012.  Later that year, I began teaching kindergarten at Shanklin Elementary.

I live on Lady's Island with my husband, two children and pets.

My goal as a pre-k teacher is to teach each child the value of lifelong learning and problem solving.  Also, we love to have FUN!
