Mrs. Wiggins began teaching at Solomon Elementary in Schofield Barracks, Hawaii where she worked in several capacities: substitute teacher, paraprofessional teacher assistant, after-school counselor, and 21st Century Community Learning Center Coordinator. Upon moving to Columbia, she started working at V. V. Reid Elementary School as a preschool teacher. Later, she served as a 3rd and 4th grade teacher. In 2011, Mrs. Wiggins was offered a position at Wil Lou Gray, and it has been one of her most rewarding experiences! She also enjoys walking, singing, serving at her church, and spending quality time with her husband and extraordinary daughter. They have a beautifully blended family whom they love unconditionally!
I am a native of Columbia, SC and a graduate of Dreher High School. I attended Coker College and played both women's basketball and soccer. My teaching career has allowed me to teach and coach at Denmark-Olar Middle School, Swansea High School, and AC Flora High School. I am married with three boys, ages 18, 16, and 12. In our free time, we like camping in the mountains of NC and enjoying the beach along the SC coast. I really enjoy working with and interacting with young people from different walks of life.
