  • Bennettsville, SC
  • Marlboro County High School

Hello, I am Rhonda Bridges Van Pelt, an Appalachian State University graduate of 1985 where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Communications Media and Marketing. I worked at the The Charlotte Observer prior to entering Education (lateral entry in 2000 while I acquired my teaching license in 2003). I taught high school Marketing in the Career and Technical Education program for 16 years in NC and currently in my 6th year in Marlboro County, SC. I earned my National Board Certification in 2009 and just recently renewed for 10 more years. I graduated from Coastal Carolina University in 2021 with a Masters in Instructional Technology degree. I serve at my school as a mentor teacher, DECA and NTHS advisor, and School Improvement Committee member. I am married to Scott, 33 years. We have a daughter Bridget and son-in-law Weston Lawing, and granddaughter Hattie Sue, and our son Camden and daughter-in-law Rebecca Van Pelt. We love to RV with family and friends. We fulfilled our family goal of all 50 states in 2017 and beginning the journey again. Being a teacher offers many rewards and challenges. The rewards are why I teach, and the challenges make me better to obtain those rewards.
