Degrees and Certifications:
Greetings! My name is Candice Weithers, and I am delighted to serve the Lester community as the school’s curriculum technology coach. Over the past 17 years, I have taught students in grades 1-6 in both Orangeburg and Florence. I am a native of Brooklyn, New York but am happy to have found a second home here in South Carolina. I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from South Carolina State University. I also possess a master’s degree in Educational Studies with an emphasis in teacher leadership and a Specialist Degree in Educational Administration. Since 2011, I have been a national board certified teacher. I am grateful for the opportunity that I am provided each day to support teachers and grow young learners. I enjoy building relationships with students, parents, and colleagues and am excited about continuing to make an impact on the quality of teaching and learning in our public schools.
