Mrs. Counterman

Welcome to 4K!

My name is Beth Counterman, and I am extremely excited about being the 4K teacher for Eagle Nest Elementary! I cannot wait to work with the students and families in 4K. This is my 28th year of teaching! I received a Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education from the University of South Carolina and my Master of Early Childhood Education from the College of Charleston. I am a National Board Early Childhood Generalist certified teacher. I began my teaching career in Charleston County, where I taught Kindergarten at Jennie Moore Elementary for 15 years. This is my 13th year in Dorchester School District Two, where I have worked at Eagle Nest since the doors opened! I was the Family Literacy/Parent Educator for the first two years. I am now beginning my 11th year as the 4K teacher at Eagle Nest.

I am so glad that your precious child is not only a part of my 4K class, but will now forever hold a special place in my heart as one of MY babies! I cannot wait to watch him/her build lasting friendships, blossom emotionally, and achieve academic excellence.
