Executive Director Curriculum & Instruction
As the daughter of an Army officer, Emilie Woody moved 17 times during her childhood. Through the multiple moves, she found sanctuary in the summer programs at the library and any sports team she could join–thus the genesis for her lifelong love of the library and sports. Emilie attended Furman University on a softball/academic scholarship and graduated with a BA in History/Education, and later a MA in Reading Education. She began teaching Social Studies classes directly after graduation 30 years ago and taught in Greenville (SC), Richmond (VA), and Charlotte (NC) before joining the faculty of Wando High School in Mount Pleasant, SC in 2002. In 2006, Emilie earned her Masters in Library and Information Science from the University of South Carolina and began her career as a Library Media Specialist/Teacher Librarian and found her true passion as an educator–expanding opportunities and access for more students!
In October 2014, Emilie received the honor of being named Wando High School’s Teacher of the Year and then Charleston County School District’s Teacher of the Year for the 2015-16 school year. This honor led her to the opportunity to join the CCSD District Staff, first as the Professional Development Coordinator and currently as the Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction where she leads an incredible team of District Instructional Specialists/Curriculum Coordinators, Interventionists, School Psychologists, and the Professional Development Coordinator.
Career and college readiness for every student.
