• Welcome to 8th grade & Ms. McCorkle’s science classroom! I am from North Charleston and I graduated from Fort Dorchester High School. I completed my Bachelor’s of Education at Charleston Southern University and graduated last December. I began teaching at GMS last December, but this will be my first year in Science. I enjoy spending my free time at the movies, with family and friends and learning new things! I am excited to start this 2019-2020 school year with all of you!
