Hello Parents and Students,  

This is my 12th year working at Dutch Fork Middle School.  I currently teach 7th grade Science. l have lived in South Carolina all of my life, but not in Columbia. Born and raised in the Pee Dee area. I attended University of South Carolina where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Middle Level Education. I received an Master degree in Teaching and Learning from Nova Southeastern University. Lastly, I recently received my Adminstration and Supervision Master degree in Education.


This will be a wonderful school year. On November 13, 2021, I will marry my best friend so my name will change to Mrs. Cunningham. 


I really enjoy teaching. My goal is to help make science fun for all of my students.  As a result, they will be inspired to aim high for their goals and dreams and reach beyond their expectations. When I am not teaching, I enjoy painting,but I am not a pro. I enjoy spending time with my parents and friends.


This year will be a challenge but I am right here with you all, for any support needed.
