Elizabeth Spinney


Let me begin by introducing myself. My name is Liz Spinney and this is my first year here at Creative Arts. I recently moved to the area from New York, where I primarily taught 3-5th grade for seven years. I graduated from SUNY New Paltz with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in English. I also hold a Masters Degree in Literacy Education from Kaplan University.

Dance is a passion of mine. I have been teaching various forms of dance for sixteen years. In my spare time I enjoy sewing, crafting, and photography.

This year your child will grow tremendously as a learner and individual. They will sharpen their skills and broaden their knowledge base in all content areas. I will work hard to prepare them for the responsibilities and expectations that are to come in Middle School. I am your child’s primary teacher this year. Working alongside me is an incredible team of professionals. We all have one common goal- to help your child challenge their mind while growing a love for learning.

I believe teaching is very much a partnership that occurs between home and school. Your child will benefit greatly if the lines of communication are open between us. Please contact me via email (Elizabeth.Spinney@beaufort.k12.sc.us), school phone, written note, or stop in to set up a conference time, with any questions or concerns. Is your child is involved in local sports or hobbies? If so, please send me a schedule so I can come to a game or performance to support them. I look forward to an exciting year with your Fifth Grader!
