Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Tamera Davenport
After growing up in Florence, SC, I attended College of Charleston for two years before returning home to finish my Bachelor's Degree at Francis Marion University. Upon my graduation, my family and I relocated upstate to the small city of Due West. After a year of substitute teaching in Abbeville County, I was hired to teach 7th grade English Language Arts, and later Math, at McCormick Middle School. Four years later, I was moved to 5th grade. After teaching 5th grade for 15 years, I was moved to 4th grade.
During my third and fourth years teaching, I attained my Master's in Elementary Education from Lander University as well as becoming National Board Certified in Early Adolescents in English Language Arts. I recently added Middle Level English Language Arts as an area of certification, and I am currently working on attaining a Gifted and Talented endorsement.
Currently in my 21st year of teaching--all in the McCormick School District
My husband David and I celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary last summer and I am the proud mother of Alex, who is currently in eight grade at McCormick Middle School.
