Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Tabitha Kirkland

My name is Tabitha Kirkland, and I am honored to be joining the Walnut Creek Elementary School’s family for this year as the Media Specialist.  I have over 16 years of experiences in education with seven years as a Media Specialist.  I graduated from Francis Marion University in Florence, SC, and earned my Master of Education in School Administration from Regent University of Virginia Beach, VA.  Then, I gained my certification as a Media Specialist from Indiana State University. I am certified in high school and Middle school English, School Administration K-12, and Media Specialist K-12.   As a life-long learner, one of my goals is to inspire kids to achieve their dreams by motivating kids to read a book, and become life-long readers.  I believe in the words of Maya Angelou: “Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.”

During my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, reading a good book, writing, and going to the beach.  I have enjoyed coaching my son’s little league soccer team for the past three years.

I look forward to enjoying a wonderful year! Go Wildcats! Let’s Read!
