Bio

Miss Wood started as Whitmire High School's head athletic trainer in the fall of 2005 and as a middle school science teacher in the fall of 2007.  Nationally certified as an athletic trainer by the Board of Certification for Athletic Training and the State of South Carolina, she is responsible for coordinating the sports medicine services for all athletes in our athletics program.  Beverly earned her undergraduate degree from Erskine College, located in Due West, South Carolina, and a graduate degree from the University of South Carolina.  Beverly completed an additional master's degree in Educational Leadership through the American College of Education.  Before coming to Whitmire High School, she served as a student athletic trainer at Erskine and a graduate assistant athletic trainer at the University of South Carolina.  Beverly is member of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association, the Mid-Atlantic Athletic Trainers’ Association, and the South Carolina Athletic Trainers’ Association.   

Beverly went through the PACE (Program of Alternative Certification for Educators) program to become certified to teach middle school science.  To earn a professional certificate through this program candidates must meet the following criteria: continuous employment as a teacher for three years; successful completion of all required institutes; recommendation for certification by the on-site instructors for the State Department of Education alternative certification training program; successful ADEPT formal evaluation and a successful formal or informal evaluation during the final year of program participation; successful completion of the three designated courses; and a passing score on the PLT. Professional certification was issued at the end of the third year as all requirements were completed.  

Since gaining initial teacher certification, Beverly has added the gifted and talented endorsement to her certificate.  She is also certified to teach Project Lead the Way, Design and Modeling and Automation and Robotics courses.  She was honored as the the 2013 Secondary Teacher of the Year for Whitmire Community School.

Beverly enjoys reading, watching movies, attending athletic events/concerts, travelling, and spending time with family and friends.
