• Hello ! Welcome to Susan Conner's 5th Grade Classroom!


    Spearman Elementary School 5th Grade


    Welcome to my 5th grade class!    I am very excited about this new, exciting school year!   After spending 2 years teaching in our district's virtual academy, I am returning to my 5th grade in-person classroom.  This is my 25th year teaching school, and I have been blessed to teach my entire career in Anderson 1.  I absolutely love teaching here at Spearman.  Prior to moving to Spearman, I taught at Palmetto Elementary for three years and Palmetto Middle for three years.  During my teaching career, I have taught 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 7th grades.  Without a doubt, teaching 5th grade is my favorite!
    I completed my Masters of Education degree at Southern Wesleyan University in May of 2004.  My Education degree is from Anderson University (1996).  I also have a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from Southern Wesleyan University (1988).
    My husband, Jeff, and I will celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary in December.  We have one son, Griff, who is 26 years old.  He is a graduate of Clemson University, "Go Tigers", and works locally in agribusiness.  Griff was married in March of 2022.  We are so blessed to have added a precious daughter-in-law, Lindsey, to our family.  Our family operates a beef cattle operation.  We enjoy spending time camping, fishing, working with our cattle on our family farm, and beekeeping.  Our pets include Abby, our black Lab,  and Sassy Cat, who is a mix of calico and Siamese.  We also have two grand furbabies, Echo and Mae.
