Mrs. Autumn Adzema
2022-2023 Myrtle Beach Middle School Teacher of the Year
Hello! My name is Autumn Adzema, and this is my sixth year teaching 7th Grade English Language Arts at Myrtle Beach Middle School! I graduated from Coastal Carolina University in the Spring of 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in Middle Level Education with a specialization in Middle Level English Language Arts and Middle Level Social Studies. In the Winter of 2020, I graduated from Coastal Carolina University for a second time with a master’s degree in Literacy, Language and Culture with a concentration in Educational Literacy.
I am originally from Columbia, South Carolina; however, due to my father’s military career, I had the opportunity to grow up in a variety of places! Over the last ten years, I have made Myrtle Beach, SC my forever home! Earlier this year I got married to my wonderful husband, Matthew, who is also a teacher! In our free time, we love to visit with my parents in Andrews, SC, visit my little sister at the University of South Carolina, and we often travel to the Cleveland, Ohio area to visit with his side of the family! We have two Labradoodles, Copley and Malley, and we love taking them for walks around the Market Common!
Growing up, I never imagined that I would one day become a teacher, but now that I am, I could not possibly imagine having any other career! I am so fortunate that I have made wonderful friends, had amazing mentors, and that I am in a career field that allows me to have new adventures everyday! I absolutely adore all of my students, and I love spending my days getting to know them and watching them grow! I am incredibly honored to have been selected to be the 2022-2023 Teacher of the Year for Myrtle Beach Middle School! It is such a privilege to represent my school in this capacity!
