My name is Lynette Corder and I have a dual-role position at Williston-Elko School District 29. I am the district's ESOL Coordinator as well the READ 180 reading interventionist at Williston-Elko Middle School.
I hold a B.A. degree in Secondary English from USCAiken. I also earned my M.Ed in Divergent Learning from Columbia College. I hold certifications in both elementary education and secondary education (English). I am currently working to obtain my ESOL certification.
As the ESOL Coordinator, I have the privilege to work with our district's English language learners. I travel between the elementary, middle, and high schools to service these scholars. I am also responsible for administering the yearly WIDA ACCESS assessment that each ESOL scholar must take at the end of the year.
At Williston-Elko Middle School, I serve a 6th grade class, a 7th grade class, and an 8th grade class. These scholars receive daily reading intervention through READ 180, a fabulous program that includes direct instruction, independent reading, and computer time.
I also serve as a teacher mentor. I am passionate about helping new teachers find their way in the classroom during their first year. I find mentoring teachers very rewarding. I love seeing teachers succeed and forge their own path to becoming the quality educators that our field so desperately needs.
As a Williston native, I am thrilled to be a teacher in this district. I have previously taught at Macedonia Elementary in Blackville and Redcliffe Elementary in Jackson. I am happy to now be here, serving my hometown as a teacher, just as my grandmother did so many years ago.
I am married to David Corder, who is also a native of Williston. We have 3 sons. Tommy is a subcontractor and lives in Greenville. David is a 5th grade ELA/Social Studies teacher at Horse Creek Academy in Aiken. Anderson is a legal assistant for Knapp Law Firm in Barnwell.
In my free time, I enjoy crafting, home projects, gardening, cooking, and reading. David and I love road trips and try going to the beach as often as we can. We also have 3 dogs and 2 cats that entertain us and keep us busy!
