    Hello! My name is Kristin Tanner. This year I am the school counselor for 1st, 3rd, & 5th graders. Each year I loop up with my students which allows me to truly embark on their educational journey from the time they enter Spann Elementary to the day they graduate! I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the College of Charleston. Shortly after, I obtained a Master of Education degree from The Citadel in Counselor Education certified K-8th grade. I am thrilled to be a part of the Spann family and I look forward to spending the year with you all! :)
