Hello, my name is Brenda Howell and I am excited to be returning to Whitesville Elementary School. I began my journey into education by earning a Bachelor of Science Degree from The College of Charleston and a Masters of Education Degree in Educational Leadership from The Citadel. This year I started my twenty-first year in education. The first twelve years I spent as an elementary teacher in both Charleston County and Berkeley County. This is my ninth year in administration.
I was born and raised in Charleston. My husband, Jeremy is a United Methodist Minister, and my three children, Craig, Chelsea, and Katie Sineath all attended and graduated from Berkeley County Schools and have gone on to undergraduate, graduate, or doctoral programs. Craig graduated from Clemson University with a Bachelor’s degree, then from Emory University with a Master’s degree and is currently a medical student at Emory University. Chelsea also graduated from Clemson University with a Bachelor’s degree and received a Doctoral degree from Sherman Chiropractic College. Chelsea currently owns her own chiropractic clinic in Greenville, SC. My youngest daughter, Katie, followed in my footsteps! She graduated from The College of Charleston with a Bachelor of Science Degree and is currently teaching fifth grade at Cane Bay Middle School.
While education is a second career for me, it is my vocation and I am really enjoying it! I went into education because I wanted to make a difference in the lives of children and I work every day to help children want to learn and to feel better about themselves. Children need to know that adults care, are willing to listen, and can be trusted. Once this foundation is built, the child is able to soar! I also want to build this relationship with the families at Whitesville. My door is always open and I am always willing to listen and to help in any way that I can. Please feel free to call me at 843-899-8880 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
