Meet Mrs. McCants



May 17, (????, lol) Charleston, South Carolina


 I married my high school sweetheart, Karsten McCants on December 31, 2004.


December 2010  I  gave birth to my baby girl Alexis. April 2007, I gave birth to my two angels (Lillian and Julia). They are fraternal twins that are the twinkle in my eyes.


I love to work out, I am just finding it hard now to squeeze that into my busy day.

Years Teaching:

This is the beginning of my eighth year of teaching. I taught second grade my first year, and third grade for two years at Chapel Hill Elementary. When I came to Idlewood in 2007 I taught second grade. At the end of that year I was asked to teach the High Achievers third grade class the following school year. I am know begining the journey of being a fourth grade teacher this school year.
