Mrs. Michelle L Hawkins
I am very fortunate to be a part of the GTCHS family. Born and raised in Columbia, I am a graduate of Spring Valley High School (Go Vikings). I earned a BA degree in Physical Education from Berea College (Go Mountaineers) in Berea, Kentucky and a Master’s in Education degree from the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks). I earned certification in Business Education in North Carolina and South Carolina. In 2008, I became a National Board Certified teacher in Business and Technology Education.
I have 21 years of teaching experience in South Carolina, North Carolina and Kentucky. I coached track and field for 5 years before coaching at GTCHS in 2018 & 2019. I coached field hockey in NC for 4 years. I worked 10 years for the American Red Cross in Columbia and seven years for the State Accident Fund where I conducted OSHA safety training with agencies all over the state of South Carolina.
My husband, Keith and I live in Easley. Keith teaches at Pickens HS. We moved from Morganton to Easley in 2008 so we could have a more active role in my twp stepson's lives. Keith and I enjoy camping and sitting on the beach with our feet in the water.
I enjoy teaching and love being a part of GTCHS. I feel very fortunate to be a part of starting the GTCHS Warrior Broadcast where we produce weekly videos on Warrior activities and brag on our fantastic students and staff/teachers. To watch our weekly videos go to GTCHS Warrior Broadcast on YouTube.
