Principal's Message

I hope you are having a wonderful summer and are soon ready to start the 2014-2015 school year. I’m Mrs. Teshia Hair and I am so pleased and excited to be serving as the new principal of the McCarthy Teszler School.
The McCarthy Teszler School has always been dear to my heart – it is here I began my teaching career in 1991, and I am also a Spartanburg High School graduate. I also have over 23 years of experience serving students with special needs and their families from all across Spartanburg County. For the past seven years, I worked in District 2 as their Coordinator of Special Services.
I am so looking forward to working with you – the students, families and the staff at our school. It is my passion and privilege to provide the very services to our students so that each can reach his full leaning potential.
Respectfully yours,
Mrs. Teshia Hair

Gallup Research Kick Starts Conversation in District 7

Gallup Research Kick Starts Conversation in District 7
Dr. Tim Hodges, Director of Research with Gallup spent time in Spartanburg and the District speaking about hope, engagement, and well-being, and how measuring those outcomes can strengthen student readiness for learning.
Last year the Gallup Student Poll found that while 54% of the children surveyed felt hopeful, 46% feel stuck or discouraged about the future. Hodges noted, “That is real cause for concern.”
Next week D7 will administer the 2014 Gallup Student Poll to 1800 children in grades 5-12 with 20 questions like: “Did you smile and laugh a lot yesterday?”, “Is there an adult in my life who cares about my future?”, and “Is my school committed to building the strengths of each student?”
We believe this important feedback will help us improve hope and engagement and enable us to better prepare our students for college, career, and life.
Gallup is providing this Poll free of charge.
