On this day in 1952, through legislative action, 70 individual school districts in Anderson County were consolidated into the current five school districts. This action was taken in response to Act 379 of the General Assembly of South Carolina in 1951. 70 years later, Anderson 3 is home to 2,700 students, 375 employees, 5 schools, and a shared career center. While things look different than they did seventy years ago, our commitment to serving children remains the same. πŸ’› #PridePurposePassion #Anderson3

Meet #A3AllStar, Mrs. Johnie Cape!🌟 Mrs. Cape is the Project Lead the Way / Robotics teacher at Starr-Iva Middle School. Johnie holds a bachelor's in vocational education from Clemson University and a master's in educational leadership from Walden University. After receiving her bachelor's, Cape worked as an architectural assistant/drafter for five years before accepting the Industrial Technology job at Starr-Iva. Over the last 23 years, Johnie has inspired students to think outside the box. Students learn critical thinking and team-building skills during projects such as model rockets, toothpick bridges, lego robotics, and coding robots. "What do you value most about working in education?" "I love teaching engineering because it gives kids the opportunity to learn by failing. Failure is our opportunity to learn and grow to become successful. Working in vocational education, I am allowing students to utilize their unique gifts and talents. I can introduce them to new adventures they may never have taken. I love hearing from former students and where education has brought them." Johnie is married to her high school sweetheart Ray Cape. Together they have three daughters, Abby, Rayanna, and Jessica. Thank you, Mrs. Cape, for being a dynamic teacher who inspires students to dream big. πŸ’›
