Ms. Shyvonne Brown-Alford


My name is Ms. Shyvonne Brown-Alford. I am a life-long resident of Lake City and graduate of Claflin College where I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education.  I furthered my studies at Lesley College, South Carolina State University and The Citadel earning a Master’s in Technology in Education, School Counseling, and School Administration, respectfully.  I have been teaching and reaching students for 26 years.  My first sixteen years were spent in Williamsburg County as a Second Grade, Fourth Grade, Alternative School, High School Exit Exam, and Adult Education teacher; Junior High Basketball Coach and Varsity Cheerleading Coach.

For the past 10 years, I have proudly served as the School Counselor and Secretary of the Dad’s Club at J.K. Gourdin Elementary. As the Title I Facilitator, I will continue working with teachers, parents, students and community members in this hidden gem called JKE.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.

My favorite quote is: “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care."
