Bienvenue! This is my third year at Chapin Middle School and I am so excited to be here! I previously taught French in Hilton Head, Winnsboro, River Springs Elementary School and Irmo High School. I graduated from Michigan State University with a BA in French. I have traveled extensively worlwide and studied in France twice; a semester in Paris and a summer in Nice. I have a son who is a senior at Chapin High School, and a daughter who is a freshman at Spring Hill. When I am away from school, you will find me competing in open water swimming events, officiating swim meets, or attached to my camera at soccer and equestrian events. I can't wait to see what this year entails.
