Principal's Message

A Message from our Principal

On behalf of the faculty and staff of Cooley Springs-Fingerville Elementary School, I am excitedThe Blanton Family about the opportunities that are in store for you this year! We are passionate about the students and families we serve. You will find that we are committed to providing a rigorous, innovative educational experience that prepares our students for reaching their full potential by planning relevant and engaging lessons where students have opportunities to think critically and solve real-world problems. We believe that through home and school partnering together, our students can achieve anything!

I am a graduate of Boiling Springs High School. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Education from the University of South Carolina Upstate where I became certified in both Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I went on to earn my Master’s Degree in Administration from the University of South Carolina. I am currently working on my Doctorate Degree in Curriculum and Assessment at Southern Wesleyan University because I know what education has done for me and can also do for your students! I am excited that my professional learning will support your children and your child’s teacher in providing the very best educational opportunities. I am very blessed to have a supportive family. My parents raised me to work hard, be kind to others, and always give 100%. My husband, Steven, is a CPA and enjoys his career in helping people with their finances! My daughter, Ansley, is in seventh grade and loves playing all kinds of sports, spending time with friends and family, and is learning to play the trumpet! My son, Graham, is in fourth grade and enjoys singing, playing the piano, and being creative! He has a vivid imagination and always keeps us laughing! Cora is the baby of the family, enjoys being silly, and is a mama’s girl! Our family is active in our church where Steven and I play trumpet in the orchestra. Our family loves to go on vacation whenever we have the opportunity. Our favorites include Disney World and cruising, but we are looking forward to traveling to see all 50 states with our family!

I like to think that I was born a teacher, but I have been serving in public schools as a certified educator since 2007. I started my career at Hendrix Elementary where I taught 4K, 1st Grade, 3rd Grade, and served as a reading interventionist, IB Coordinator, and Assistant Principal. My experiences have prepared me to effectively serve the teachers, parents, students, and families of CSF. I strive every day to focus on loving the students and teachers. I am invested in your child’s success, and I am honored to serve as the Principal of Cooley Springs-Fingerville Elementary School.

My goal is to serve alongside our faculty and staff to meet the individual needs of each and every family and student. I am committed to always giving my very best and being dedicated to the students, families, and teachers! If you ever have any questions or concerns, please contact our office at (864) 592-1211. I am excited that your child will be spending the year with us at Cooley Springs-Fingerville Elementary School! It is exciting to watch our CSF Cubs take chances as they achieve, learn, and grow. Every student matters. Every moment counts.

Stephanie Blanton, Principal
