Degrees and Certifications:
It is my privilege to be a part of the Rock Hill school district. I bring to the district twenty years of teaching experience. I spent 14 years as a first grade teacher, three years teaching at the prekindergarten level, and three years teaching second grade. It is a joy to be able to witness and help facilitate the greatness that each individual learner brings to the classroom each year. I believe a classroom should not only help a student to grow academically but also grow socially and emotionally. I work to foster a safe and non-threating classroom environment. An environment where children can be free to take risks, make mistakes and grow as learners.
I am married to a wonderful and supportive husband for 24 years. We have two amazing children who have grown into productive young adults. My son, Andrew, starts his career in the warehousing industry and my daughter, Sarah, will be starting her first year in the Darla Moore School of Business at University of South Carolina. We are a family that enjoys spending time together and discovering new places to explore. I am excited to see what new memories will be created this school year.
