Greetings all, I am Javette N. Middleton. I am a 2011 graduate from South Carolina State University where I received my Bachelor’s degree in Family and Consumer Sciences (Child Development). After receiving my first degree I decided to pursue my Masters degree in Elementary Education, where I graduated from Grand Canyon University in May 2014. My philosophy of education is that I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my desire to meet their full potential.

I am a native of Orangeburg, SC. I am a 2014 graduate of South Carolina State University with a B.S. Degree in Early Childhood Education. I enjoy travelling and sight-seeing. I also love to raise and care for animals.


Hello, my name is Tiffany Grant. I am a Teacher's Assistant at St. James-Gaillard Elementary School. I am a native from Queens, New York and currently live in Vance, South Carolina. I earned a Bachelor's of Arts Degree in Sociology at Queens College, City University of New York with a minor in business.  My experience working with children has fueled a desire within me to see children succeed in and outside of the classroom setting.  When I'm not in the classroom, I enjoy writing poetry and short stories, reading, praise dancing, creating skits, and spending time with my nieces and my friends along with helping to take care of my grandmother. I always believe that inside of today's youth lies dreams, potential, gifts, and passion that can only be awaken by someone who is sensitive and passionate enough to recognize it and help to awaken these qualities inside of them.
