Mrs. Terissa Orr


Hello! My name is Terissa Orr. I am so excited about being your child's teacher this school year! I look forward to a successful school year working with you and your student!

About Me:

I have been living in Effingham County, GA since 2006. I attended Marlow Elementary School and South Effingham Middle School, and I graduated from South Effingham High School in 2016! I recently got married to my husband, Shemar Orr, in December of 2022! We share two fur babies (cats), Addilynn and Hinata.

Educational Background:

I graduated from Georgia Southern University (Go Eagles!) with my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education in May of 2021. I began my teaching journey in 2021, where I taught third grade in Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools. In May of 2022, I decided I wanted to come home to Effingham, where I am now a Third Grade teacher here at Blandford! I am currently working on my Master's Degree in Higher Education Administration and will be graduating in May of 2024. Teaching has been such a rewarding experience, and I look forward to continuing to grow and succeed with your children here at Blandford Elementary School!
