Welcome to 4th grade! I am excited to be your teacher this year. I will be teaching ELA/SS and teaming with Mrs. Heming, who will be teaching Math/Science.
This will be my 13th year of teaching, having taught both fourth and fifth grade. I was born in South Carolina and graduated from the University of South Carolina, where I received my Master's Degree in Education. During college, I completed my teaching internship in District 5 and haven't left since.
My husband is also a teacher in our district. We have two children, a seven-year-old daughter and a two-year-old son. In our free time, we love watching movies, spending time near the water or mountains, and cheering on the Gamecocks.
During this year, I hope to help your child grow as a passionate and independent thinker. I believe in a strong sense of community where children feel comfortable to take risks and are able to work together as a team. I look forward to a successful year with you and your child in 4th grade!
