Miss Katherine Plexico is a first year English teacher at Summerville High School. She attended Wofford, which was hard, but she was still able to have fun. Obtaining a teaching degree is harder than some may expect.

“Wofford was definitely for me! Small classes plus beautiful campus equals happy me” said Miss Plexico.

Miss Plexico has always wanted to be a teacher since she was younger.

“I’ve always wanted help people and have always love learning, so teaching was a no-brainer” Plexico stated.

The most interesting thing people didn’t know about Miss Plexico is she played the guitar, ukulele, and piano. In high school she participated in volleyball, softball, and was editor of the school yearbook. Miss Plexico prepares for the upcoming weeks by taking Sundays to clean her house and plan ahead for her students assignments.

“When I can do it, It works well” said Plexico.

Teaching can be draining. After school hours Plexico takes naps and does schoolwork. She prefers to grade papers in big chunks while sitting in Starbucks.

Many teachers tend to complain about the amount of money they’re paid and wish for more money.

“I personally think we should pay teachers more because of all [they] do, not just because I am one. [They] end up getting paid less than a babysitter would [for] doing much more” Miss Plexico said.

Miss Plexico gives advice to students wanting to take the path of being a teacher.

“Pay attention to what your teachers do/did that worked/s well and that you like, whether it be rules, activities, or classroom management.”
