Each Day at NRES is a Great Day to Experience the Joy of Math!
Hi! As the NRES Math Coach, my goal is to provide effective instructional support for teachers and ultimately improve student achievement in math.
As a young girl, I loved numbers and was drawn to finance and accounting which led me to earn a B. S. in Financial Management from Clemson University. I enjoyed working in this field until I became a stay at home mom when my first son was born. My spark for educating children was ignited while volunteering as a Math SuperStar Mom in my son’s 3rd grade math class at Harbison West Elementary School!
I earned my Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) in Elementary Education from the University of South Carolina in 1998 and have enjoyed being part of the NRES community ever since. After teaching 3rd grade at NRES, I became an instructional coach and was trained in Cognitive Coaching. My love of numbers extends to enjoying playing games during my free time. My favorite activity outside of school is spending time with my husband, Billy, and also visiting our two adult sons and our daughter-in-law.
