Hello Mustangs! This is my 2nd year at Midway and 9th year teaching. I earned my degree in Early Childhood Education from University of South Carolina. My husband and I have been married for 10 years. We stay very busy with our four children. Gabriel is 12, Zoe is 9, Callan is 5, and Brody is 3. I love watching Gamecock football, family game night, and most of all reading! I am looking forward to a wonderful year with great memories!
Hello Mustangs! This is my eighth year teaching first grade at Midway and my thirteenth year teaching overall. I received my undergraduate and Masters degree from Xavier University located in Cincinnati, Ohio. My husband and I have two children. My daughter Madelyn is four and we just welcomed our son Zachary in April. We also have an 8-year-old pup named Sophie. When I am not teaching I like to spend time with my family and friends. I am looking forward to another great year at Midway!
I grew up in Augusta, GA and live in Lexington with my family. My husband is also a teacher and the boys’ basketball coach at White Knoll Middle School. We have a daughter in 7th grade and a son in 3rd grade and enjoy spending time together as a family. In my free time, I enjoy reading, shopping, drinking coffee, playing board games, and cheering on the Georgia Bulldogs. I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from Presbyterian College and from Furman University with a Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction. I have been in education for 16 years teaching reading, parenting, school readiness, kindergarten, and first grade. This is my third year as a Mustang, and I love being a part of the Midway Family.
Welcome to 1st grade! This is my 13th year teaching and having fun with kids. I have loved watching kids grow and learn. I look forward to seeing how much growth can be made this year in 1st grade.
I have a degree from Columbia College in Elementary Education. I am certified in both Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I also have a master’s degree in Divergent Learning from Columbia College. My latest professional accomplishment was receiving National Board Certification in 2013.
Outside of school I love to spend time with my family. I am married and have two boys who also attend Lexington 1 schools. I have a sweet Cockapoo named Kaycee. She is my one and only girl!
I cannot wait to work with our parents and students in order to demonstrate our motto of “making a difference for every student.” Go Mustangs!
Hello to all! I am excited to be a part of the Mustang family! I am entering my fifth year of teaching, but my first year of teaching at Midway. I graduated from the University of South Carolina with my degree in Early Childhood Education, and I am currently pursuing my Master’s Degree in Administration and Supervision from Liberty University. My husband and I stay rather busy with our three year old daughter, but we enjoy spending time with family and friends during the free time that we have. We also love to cheer on the Gamecocks during all sporting events, too. I look forward to a new year of learning and growing in 1st grade!
I have taught at Midway Elementary since the doors opened over 20 years ago. I received both my undergraduate and masters degrees in Early Childhood education from the University of South Carolina. It has been an honor to be recognized as Teacher of the Year at both Oak Grove Elementary and Midway Elementary and as a district finalist twice. My husband is employed at W P Law, Inc. Our youngest son is an engineer in NC, and our oldest lives in MN with our adorable 2-year old granddaughter. I enjoy hiking, gardening, entertaining friends, reading great books, and I’m very excited to begin another wonderful year as a Midway Mustang!

Andrea McLane is a first grade teacher at Midway who is currently teaching ELA in the French Immersion program. Before coming to Midway, Mrs. McLane taught deaf and hard of hearing students in both Aiken and Columbia. She has been at Midway for 14 years.

French Immersion – Math/Science
Bonjour! This will be my fourth year at Midway. I received my Bachelor’s in Early Childhood from USC, and I have spoken French since I can remember. Although I was raised in the States, I love the language and the opportunity to pass it on to children. I live in Lexington with my husband and four step-kids, and in my free time I enjoy writing or spending time with my family.
