Mrs. Candace Bridges
August 28, 2018
Mrs. Candace Bridges replaced Mr. Phil Nicodemo this year. She teaches freshman biology and environmental science. She joins her husband, Ross Bridges, in the science department.
Mrs. Bridges was a science teacher at Tattnall Square Academy for 10 years, and was awarded a Masters Teacher certification through the Georgia Independent Schools Association. Although this is her first year teaching at Stratford, she has taught Stratford students over various science subjects through tutoring. She also was a tutor in the Learning Support Center.
“I feel like it is my innate gift that I can receive information and break it down in a way so that others can understand which is why I though being a teacher would be good for me,” she said.
When asked why she chose science over other school subjects, Mrs. Bridges said, “I have loved science ever since I was a kid. I wanted to be an archeologist when I was young and I went to a marine biology camp during high school.”
Mrs. Bridges hopes to have more labs and hands-on learning with the students during her first year.
