Ms. Rett Fitts

“Miss Rett” was part of the teaching team that began Mason Prep’s kindergarten program. Her room is a bright and happy place where her “Froggies” grow and learn with her support and encouragement.
Why do you teach?
I guess you’d say it’s a family tradition! My mother was a teacher, and my grandmother was a teacher, so I, quite naturally, followed in their footsteps.

Why do you teach at Mason Prep?
My two children attended Mason Prep. As a kindergarten teacher at my previous preschool, I was so impressed with Mason Prep that I encouraged many families to check out the school as they prepared to leave me. When the Mason Prep kindergarten program began and I was asked to be a part of it, I jumped at the chance!

What do you want your students to get from having known you?
I want them to recognize that they are worthy of love, respect, and acceptance for who they are.

What is the most important life lesson that you want your students to take from your grade level?
We can do hard things!
We learn from making mistakes.
We always try to do the right thing at the right time.

What do you like to do for fun?
I love to read and travel. I love the Clemson Tigers and the Atlanta Braves. I love spending time with my daughter and large extended family.

Any interesting facts about yourself?
I am the oldest of six sisters and a brother. I was the teacher at the first public kindergarten on James Island.
