My name is Peyton Mills, and I am so excited to be here at Cowpens Elementary School! This is my first year teaching. I recently graduated from the University of South Carolina Upstate in December 2020. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Childhood and a Minor in Sociology. I am about to get married in December, where my new name will be Peyton McDowell. I am a dog mom of two. I have a Border Collie named Diesel and a Golden Retriever named Axel. In my spare time, I enjoyed spending time with my family and playing with my dogs.
