Hello My Name Is...

Mae Woods


Hello, my name is Mae Woods and I am very excited to be joining the first-grade team at Clio Elementary! Most of my teaching career at CES has been in the kindergarten class. I am looking forward to a year of learning, fun, and adventure.


I have been teaching at Clio Elementary for many years.  I am currently a working retiree teacher.  I have two daughters. My oldest daughter is an Assistant Principal for Richland 1 school district in Columbia, SC and my youngest one is a registered nurse at MUSC in Florence, SC. My husband retired recently as the County Director of the Marlboro Co. Department of Social Services.


It is my goal as a teacher to challenge my students daily, with learning that is meaningful, engaging, and purposeful.  I want to provide my students opportunities to grow and become critical thinkers and problem solvers.
