I teach 8th Grade ELA and English 1. I graduated from Liberty University with a MAT in Education and moved to Sumter in 2008. I am married to a wonderful man and we have a beautiful daughter. We also have a furbaby that has worked her way into our hearts. It is a joy to watch each and every student learn and grow in their own way. The best part of ELA is having the opportunity to touch a student's life in helping them excel with reading, writing, and text comprehension. I look forward to working with you and your child in providing them with a challenging; yet, fun and exciting way to expand their ELA knowledge. *please visit the Google calendar, powerschool, and the Google classroom for continual updates* we will do lots of reading and writing....I am excited to have your child SOAR in ELA with me.
