Mrs. Deatrice Aiken

A South Carolina native, I was born into a family of educators who instilled in me a love of learning. My love of literature led me to become an English teacher. This is my seventeenth year as an English teacher. I earned my Bachelor of Arts, cum laude, in English Education from South Carolina State University (2001) and my Master's degree in School Administration from Cambridge College (2005).

My career began in Orangeburg Consolidated School District #5 teaching English, serving as Yearbook Advisor, Senior Prom Advisor, and volleyball coach for 5 years. I later received a position as an Assistant Principal of Curriculum and Instruction at Jasper County High School in which I served for 2 years. Upon the birth of my children, I decided to become a stay-at-home mother. During this time I taught evening courses as an Adjunct Professor at Trident Technical College, while teaching English virtually part-time at Provost Academy. Once my children entered grade school, I decided to return full time to my first passion of teaching English. I'm now a proud Gregg Middle School Mustang, where, Success is the ONLY option!
