Amy Orr

Belmont Abbey College, 2009 Bachelors of Arts in Elementary Education
2014 Teacher of the Year, Highland Creek Elementary, Charlotte, NC


I am originally from Roanoke, Virginia. My husband and I have two teenage sons: Logan is as student at USC in Columbia, and Jonathan is a student at Hilton Head High School. In 2015, our family moved from the Lake Norman area of Charlotte, NC to Hilton Head. In my spare time, I enjoy cheering for Logan and Jonathan at their soccer and football games.  If you go to a HHI football game, be sure to yell loud for the kicker – that’s my Jonathan!  I also enjoy reading, scrapbooking, cooking, and traveling to visit friends and family.   

After staying at home with my boys while they were young, I went back to school and graduated summa cum laude from Belmont Abbey College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in K-6 Elementary Education in 2009. Bringing my experience of teaching Pre-K through 6th grade while in North Carolina, I am blessed to teach kindergarten with the amazing team here at Hilton Head Early Childhood Center!

Kindergarten is a very important year in your child's academic career – it is their first experience of “real” school. Students in kindergarten have unique academic, social, and emotional needs. It is my mission to empower my students to achieve academic success, as well as grow socially and emotionally. I am dedicated to easing the transition into kindergarten, and to prepare your child to be successful in elementary school and beyond. I LOVE teaching, and I am excited to be a part of this wonderful, academic adventure with you!    

I look forward to a great year with you and your child. If I can be of any assistance at any time, feel free to contact me at It is very difficult to take phone calls, so my preferred method of communication is by email. I do my best to check it at least twice per day.
