Julie Collins

Hi, I'm Julie Collins.  This is my 21st year teaching.  I graduated from Clemson University.  I am married and have three children Lindsey, Will and Harper.  I enjoy Clemson football, riding bikes, fishing, and spending time with my family.  There is no place I'd rather be than BRE!!!

Amanda Gardner
 Hi, I'm Amanda Gardner and this is my 28th year teaching.  I think that I always knew that I wanted to be a teacher, because I have always loved children.  I always enjoyed going to school, and I still do.  I attended Seneca High School where I was a cheerleader.  I went on to further my education at Clemson University.  I am married to Scott Gardner and we have two children, Russell and Allie Grace.  We have two dogs named Beau and River.  One of my favorite things to do is to relax by the pool with friends and family.

Philip Price
I have been teaching for two years.  I began teaching in Anderson 5 last year, after spending several years in technology at A5 and SDOC.  My favorite teacher from elementary school, Angie Cater, just retired this year from Westminster Elementary School.  She was my fourth grade teacher and the reason I am a teacher today!  My favorite thing to do is to spend time with my wife and children.  We love to play outdoors, swim, read and go to exciting places. ~Philip Price
