Learner Profile: The LPQ that best describes me is BALANCED. I am a teacher and a mom to three little boys, which keeps me super busy, but I love it!
About Me: I grew up in Rock Hill Schools, and have lived here my entire life. Working in this district has been a blessing to me. I love working with technology in my classroom, and I am always looking for new ways to integrate it. I have a passion for teaching social studies and enjoy getting to learn about new cultures and places. I am married to my husband, Kenny, and we have three sons, Cole (2009), Tripp (2013), and Mason (2015). In my spare time I love to read, try out new recipes, and spend time outside.
Honors and Achievements: Department Head for Social Studies; National History Day Coordinator;2018-2019 Teacher of the Year
