Hello My Name Is...

Kathleen Archer

I first walked through the front doors of M.C. Riley in 1997. My husband, Shannon, and I moved here from Virginia and are very happily raising two daughters, who also attended M.C. Riley.  Maddy is now a junior at May River High School, and Claire is in the 7th grade at Bluffton Middle School.  

Teaching is my passion, and I love being in the classroom. I'm thrilled to be part of the gifted and talented program working mainly with 5th graders as the advanced teacher for ELA and Math.

When not at school our family stays very busy with church, afterschool activities, and friends. We spend most of our time at the ballparks for Claire’s softball, or the golf course watching Maddy. 

There are so many exciting things happening in education today, and I love watching my current students grow up with my own children right here in Bluffton. I look forward to seeing you in the hallways, where we "Learn, Love, Lead!"
