Mrs. Kavitha Rathinam

Greetings! My name is Kavitha Rathinam and I teach 8th Math and Algebra 1 Honors class. This is my 8th year teaching math in Orangeburg, South Carolina. Prior to this experience in the USA, I taught math and science for 9 years in middle and high school including 3 years as an administrator. I love my profession because I believe in making difference in someone's life. I live with my husband, daughter, and a pet dog. My hobbies are cooking, painting, and gardening.
