Hello everyone! This is my seventh year in Lexington/Richland 5 and I am excited to be with you all! I was born in and grew up right here in Columbia, South Carolina but also lived in Florida after completing college. I have been married to my wonderful husband since 2010 and we enjoy traveling to music concerts and spending time with our rescue pup. I also love crafting and creating! I have worked with children from infant to middle school level over the course of my career in education and have been educating since 2006. Before joining Lex/Rich 5, I taught Math/Science in Richland School District Two and coached a F.I.R.S.T. robotics team. I love working with children and being an integral part of their success in life!
I believe that every child can achieve and as I get to know more about them, I will strive to make sure they get the most meaningful experience possible to be successful. I hope to encourage them to enjoy learning as they learn more about themselves and their place in the world. Everyone is unique and has something to offer their community. I am thrilled to be teaching 6th and 8th grade this year and look forward to engaging students in virtual learning! Join our Google Classroom to learn more about our class!
