Hey all!
Welcome to the 5th Grade Everyone
I am truly excited to have your child in my class!  This is my t12th year at DFES. This year I will be teaching and learning alongside your 3rd grader for all content areas.
I am a local lady!  I was born and raised in Irmo, SC.  Dutch Fork Elementary was actually my very first elementary school.  I could not imagine nor would I want to be at any other school.  There really is something magical about being a part of the Fox Cub family.  
I consider myself a DIY-er.  It has been extremely exciting working on projects with my husband.  We've recently built things that I had no idea I could do...a screened in porch, built in seated area, an ottoman. Honestly, it's eye opening and refreshing to try new things! I believe you will witness my love for adventure and exploration through the learning we do this year. My husband and I continue our greatest adventure every day, parenthood :-) We have one sweet little girl named Mila!
It is so rare to find a career that completes who you are, and I am blessed to do what I love every day.  There is no greater joy than being a positive influence on your children who will shape an amazing future for us.  Let's have an amazing year.  Dare to all is possible!
