DSC_0236Mrs. Tammy Wiksell joined our staff as an Upper School English/Language Arts teacher in November 2011. She earned her BA in English from Columbia College in 1986 and her MAT in Secondary Education/English from The Citadel in 1987. In addition to teaching English, Mrs. Wiksell teaches Middle School Bible Classes.

She taught English and reading for the Charleston County School district at Mount Pleasant’s Laing Middle School for seven years before taking a break to stay home with her young children. During that time, she built a successful home-based business focused on teaching clients how to preserve and document family history. For fifteen years as a part of that business, she recruited and trained a large team of consultants throughout the country and conducted corporate training events for other consultant teams, as well. Returning to the English classroom in 2011 was a natural fit for Mrs. Wiksell, and she loves the opportunity to work with middle school students in a Christian environment.

Tammy was born and raised in Mount Pleasant and attended First Baptist Church for her entire life. In 2010, she and her family helped launch The Church at LifePark, and they are actively involved in leadership and ministry there. She and her husband, Robbie, have four children — Mattson, Gibbs, Anderson and Chris. Tammy treasures spending time with her extended family and friends here in the Mount Pleasant area and enjoys all that life in the Lowcountry offers. For over 30 years, she has claimed  as her scriptural life verse 2 Timothy 1:7.

“For God did not give us a spirit of timidity [fear], but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.” – 2 Timothy 1:7
