Hello, my name is Lacee Mitchell. I was born and raised in New Jersey but have lived happily in the South for 8 years now. I have two children and we love the history, scenery and hospitality that South Carolina has to offer. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Human Services with an emphasis in child and family welfare. I’ve held many professional hats including experience in the non-profit sector, education, and even health care. My driving force has always been just to help others but working with children and education is my passion. My education journey started out bumpy as a single parent. Like many students, I faced a lot of barriers before completing my degree. However, I found with a lot of determination and patience I was able to make it through. The best advice I can give is to keep picturing your future, and remember that you’ve already taken that first step when you walk through these doors. Also, don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it.
