My name is John Speer, and I'm from Anderson, SC --- the home of Jim Rice, Radio, and the Black Panther.
I graduated from the University of Georgia in 1991 and earned my teaching certificate from Central Wesleyan College in 1993.
This is my twenty-sixth year in education. I taught 9th and 10th grade English for four years at Walterboro HS. I then taught 9th - 12th grade English for 3 1/2 years at Berkeley HS. In January of 2001, I became an assistant principal at Berkeley MS.
In 2002, I became an assistant principal at Fort Dorchester HS. After twelve years at The Fort, I became an assistant principal at Ashley Ridge HS.
This is my first year at Givhans and I'm very happy and excited to be here! This school and our students have so much potential!
