I have taught in various school districts in South Carolina and Georgia in 1985-1998. I worked as an adjunct instructor at ECPI University and Saint Leo University, also. I worked as a Teacher Assistant at Airport High School in Lexington School District Two in West Columbia in 2015-2017. I have 20 years of experience in online and in-person tutoring of elementary, middle, and high school students.  


My name is Brenda Ferguson-Calloway. I am a native of Springfield, SC. I graduated from Hunter-Kinard High School in Norway, SC (presently known as Hunter-Kinard-Tyler High School in Neeses, SC). I am a 1985 graduate of the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education. In 2011, I earned a Master of Arts/Education in Curriculum and in Instruction in Computer Education and a Master of Information Systems in 2013 from the University of Phoenix. I am certified in Elementary Education. 

I come from a family of teachers! My mother and two of my aunts were teachers. Currently, three of my sisters and two of my nieces are also teachers. 

I am a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. 

I am also a proud member of Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Cayce, SC where I have served on the clerical staff for the past 21 years. I am also a Sunday School teacher for the elementary students. Our motto at Mt. Zion is "Making a Difference Where it Counts in the Lives of People!" In my life, I have taken the motto a bit further: "Making a Difference Where it Counts in the Lives of Children!" 

I was married to the late Marion Calloway, a native of Rowesville, SC. I am the proud mother of a daughter, Michieka and a son, Mareiko. I am also a proud grandmother of Carmichael "Mikey" who was born in April 2021.

My Philosophy of Education is : Everyone deserves an opportunity to learn. The opportunity to learn is a privilege for everyone who is presented with such a wonderful opportunity. Everyone can learn but they might not learn at the same pace as others. Teaching is for those who want to make a difference in the lives of the students.
