First graders are Fabulous

Hello and welcome to 1st grade!!!  I am so excited to have an awesome year with your child.  Chapin Elementary is an amazing place to play, explore, and learn new things!

I have experience as a preschool inclusion teacher, kindergarten teacher, and a first grade teacher.  This is my 12th year teaching and I can't wait to get started.  I received my B.A in Experimental Psychology from the University of South Carolina.  Go Gamecocks!!!!  I then persued my Masters in Early Childhood Education from Converse College in Spartanburg, SC.  My husband and I have been married for 12 years and we have 2 beautiful children.  Our son will be 10 in December and will be in 4th grade this year and our daughter will be turing 7 in September and will be in first grade. 

I enjoy coffee, college football, Fall, candles, Italian food, chocolate, and spending time with my family and friends!  I believe that any child has the ability to learn and can achieve anything they put their mind to and I can not wait to teach your child.  Thank you for entrusting your child to me and I am so excited for a "fabulous first" grade year! :)
