Mrs. Melanie Rucker

Welcome to Mrs. Rucker's Second Grade Class!
Welcome back to McCormick Elementary School this year! It is my pleasure to teach your child. The theme that will guide us this year is "By Sticking Together... We Will Love Them to Lead Them."  I am Melanie Wideman Rucker, your child’s Second grade teacher. I was born and reared on Mims Drive here in McCormick, SC. My parents were the late Horace (Pie) and the late Dorothy S. Wideman. I am the fifth of nine children. I attended school right here in McCormick County. For  forty years, I have been teaching in the McCormick County School District. I attended Piedmont Technical College and Lander University where I obtained degrees in Secretarial Science, Business Education, and Elementary Education. I was married to the late Glenn Rucker. Our two daughters are Kimberly and Pamela Rucker. I am a Christian and a member of Mt. Moriah Baptist Church in Greenwood, SC. My hobbies include singing, reading, walking, watching movies, and spending time with my family. I also enjoy teaching the Cubbies class in the Awana program at my church. I am extremely excited to serve you and your child this year. Your child is a precious member of our school with unique talents and abilities. I have high academic expectations for your child. Using innovative creativity, critical thinking, and technology to collaborate and communicate, we are going to stick together and love your child as we lead him or her through this year.
