Mr. Kentrel Clement
Welcome to 5D, home of the hard-working crew!
Hello and welcome to a new school year! I am Mr. Clement, your child's fifth grade math, science, and social studies teacher. This will be my 13th year teaching in Dorchester District 2 and my 8th year at the Beech. I am honored to have been chosen as the 2014-2015 Beech Hill Teacher of the Year. I have also served as the 2011-2012 Teacher of the Year at Joseph R Pye Elementary and the 2008-2009 Rookie Teacher of the Year at Windsor Hill Elementary. I am excited about another year of teaching 5th grade at the Beech. I anticipate a great year for all of us! I attended DD2 schools, graduating from Fort Dorchester High School. In addition, I graduated from Charleston Southern University with a Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education and a Masters degree in elementary and middle school administration and supervision.
SHINE on, Beacons! Beacons are Safe, Honest, Intelligent, Nurturing, and Empowered! In fifth grade, we try our best to instill a sense of responsibility in our students to better prepare them for middle school and life. My mission is to facilitate a process of learning that cultivates the critical thinking, moral values, and life skills to ensure students limitless opportunities for success. I have very high expectations for all of my students and expect them to do their personal best in all areas of the curriculum. If you ever need to contact me, I can be reached best by e-mail.
