My name is Annie Lee Redd. I am a teacher at North Aiken Elementary. I teach a generic class of special education students, ages 6-11. I have been teaching special education classes for 25 years, including Orthopedically Disabled, Educable Mentally Disabled, Trainable Mentally Disabled, Autistic, Visually Disabled, and Hearing Disabled. This is my first year at North Aiken. I have been in Aiken County for 18 years. Previous schools are Millbrook Elementary, Pinecrest Elementary, Hitchcock Center, and Oakwood Windsor Elementary. My husband says that I do not have a job - I have a calling! I do love my work, and I feel like it is a blessing.

    Our family is very active at First Baptist Church in Aiken. I sing in the Sanctuary Choir and teach the 3 & 4 year old choir. I am a member of Women on Missions. I also am on the Music Committee and teach music in Bible School each summer. My husband and I both serve as chaperones for youth mission trips.
    Hobbies: I love to read, especially authors such as Mary Higgins Clark. I love to go to our lake house at Lake Murray to spend my summers sitting on the porch, lounging in the hammock, or riding on the pontoon. I always have a book with me. My husband and son love to ride the jet ski and go tubing or skiing. Retirement is coming soon!!!
