Welcome 5th Grade Families!!


This is my 6th year teaching at DFES and I love being here at DFES!!  I was born right here in Irmo and grew up in this district, so I've always known that I wanted to teach in Lexington/Richland 5.  I love watching my students grow and learn new things throughout the year!  They also help me grow and learn new things as we work alongside each other!!  My biggest goal as a teacher is to get to know your children not just as learners but as people too.

During my free time, I love doing crafty things like crocheting and putting together puzzles.  I have a three-year-old daughter named Zoey and a one-year-old son named Oliver.  We also have two dogs named Ellie and Luna.  My house gets quite busy, to say the least.
