I attended the University of South Carolina undergraduate program from 1990-1995, and received my BA in English. I received my MAT in Secondary Education from USC in 2000. I became TAG endorsed in 2018. I previously taught in Kershaw County and Sumter County. I taught high school English for six years before coming to the middle school, where I am proud to be an ADMS Hawk. I currently teach 7th Grade and 8th Grade ELA. I have a step-daughter at Alice Drive Elementary, a son at Lugoff-Elgin High School, a daughter at USC Lancaster and a teen, special needs son at home with his specialized nurses.
