I began teaching in Sumter School District after graduating from the University of South Carolina in December of 2000. I received a Master’s Degree in Education (Teacher Leadership) from Walden University. My first teaching job was at COMS teaching ELA and I taught there for half a year. Then, I taught at Willow Drive Elementary for four years and this is my twelfth year here at ADMS. It’s a great school with awesome students and I am excited about this school year. I have a precious daughter named Rachel who is growing so fast and she thinks she’s 21, but is only in elementary school! Life is good and I am very blessed. I love meeting with parents! Feel free to observe our classroom, e-mail me, or call me anytime you need to. I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
