• Hey everyone,


    My name is Ms. Coates and I am one of the 8th grade English teachers. This is my first year here at Wren Middle School, and I am so excited to be here. I recently graduated from Clemson, and I am originally from a small town called Kershaw just on the other side of Columbia. I am also the head volleyball coach at Wren Middle. I have been playing volleybal since the 3rd grade, and I am glad I get to instill the love that I have for the game into other young girls. I have also coached at Carolina One Club Volleyball while I have been attending Clemson. 


    A few of my favorite things to do are read, go shopping, to cook, and to travel and explore new places (locally in the Upstate and in the US). On the weekends you can most likely find me shopping at target, Trader Joes, or at the Haywood Mall. I have loved living in the upstate and trying new places to eat and coffe shops. 

    If you ever have any questions or concerns don't hesitate to reach out to me at coatesl@apps.anderson1.org and I will answer any questions you may have. I am excited for this school year and to meet all of you! 


    -Ms. Coates
