I would like to tell you a little about myself. I grew up in Greer, S.C. located in the upstate. I am a Newberry College graduate. I earned my Masters Degree in Elementary Education from Cambridge College in Boston, MA. What an experience!! I have achieved 30 plus hours above my Masters Degree in literacy, technology, and best practices mainly from Coastal Carolina and the College of Charleston. I'm proud to say that I earned National Board Certification in 2002 and renewed in 2011! Therefore, I am good until 2022. I am AGP and Language & Literacy endorsed.
I have three wonderful children. Addison, my oldest, is 27 years old and graduated from Coastal Carolina. Marquis, my middle child, attends Benedict College. Miss Kelsey, my youngest, graduated from CHS this year and will be attending Greenville Tech. We have two cats and a dog. They keep me busy, children and fur babies.
This is my 34th year of teaching, all in District Five. I taught at CES before there was a Lake Murray Elem. I was Teacher of the Year at CES years ago. In 04-05 I was selected TOY for LMES and then chosen as District Teacher of the Year. I was the first African American District TOY for District Five. I was also a top five finalist for State Teacher of the Year. I LOVE my profession! I enjoy watching old movies, shopping, reading (mostly professional), and football (all levels). My favorite NFL Team is the Pittsburg Steelers!
