Mrs. Chelsey Edwards
Hey there! My name is Chelsey Edwards and I am a 7th grade Science teacher here at Swift Creek Middle School. I have been teaching for 5 years total, this will be my 3rd year in 7th grade. I have taught 6th - 8th grade in my 5 years. For my first year, I started at Riverwood Middle School teaching 6th & 7th grade science, for my second and third year I taught 6th & 8th grade science at Benson Middle School, and finally for my 4th and this coming school year I have been here at Swift Creek teaching 7th grade science.
I attended Johnston Community College where I graduated with my Accosiates of Arts degree and then I transfered to Campbell University where I graduated with my Bachelors of Science Degree and my Middle Grades Science teaching licensure.
I grew up in Benson NC with my Mom, Dad and little brother. My Dad is a Fire Inspector and Pastor, my Mom works with daycare and my brother is a Welder. I met my husband in college and we got married and moved to Selma NC. My husband works in the Cardio Cath Lab at Wayne Memorial Hospital. We have been married for 3 years and together we have 2 dogs, 3 cats and a 30 gal fish tank full of fish! Our 2 dogs are Sam & Abraham, Sam being my pride and joy and Abraham being my husbands! Our cats are Chloe, Stella and Clyde. Chloe was our rescue that recently had kittens and we decided to keep 2 of them, Stella and Clyde. Our animals are our everything! You will see plenty of them around my classroom and possibly in some of your assignments!
I have always wanted to be a teacher! Growing up I would force my little brother to play school with me where he would always be the student and I was the teacher. All of my stuffed animals and his dinosaur figurines would be his classmates and my white board would be my bedroom window! Today I am living the dream where I have the classroom I always dreamed of and REAL students that fill the seats. Whether we are remote learning or in the classroom, my passion for kids and teaching goes above and beyond and I can't wait to share that with my students!
