Summer Pettigrew - Math and Science

Welcome to fifth grade!  My name is Summer Pettigrew and this is my 15th year in education.  I graduated in 2004 from The College of Charleston with a B.S. in Elementary Education and started my career at Memminger Elementary School teaching 5th and 6th grade.  In 2010, I accepted a position at Haut Gap, starting the 5th grade Pre-Magnet Program.  Here I earned my National Board Certification as well as my Gifted and Talented Certification.  After 5 years of teaching at Haut Gap, I was offered an instructional coaching position with Charleston County School District, where I supported teachers on improving their practice using technology and innovative teaching models.  I am very excited to be back "home" working with the wonderful faculty and students at HGMS!

When I'm not teaching and learning, I love spending time with my son and husband.  I am also an avid horseback rider and I enjoy running.  I look forward to getting to know each of you over the year!
