As we venture into this new school year, I am so excited to meet and nurture the young minds of sixth graders! This will be my 21st year of teaching middle school and my 3rd year at CIS.  My family moved from Maine to Chapin, SC in 2017 and we are so happy being in this beautiful town full of sunshine (and NO SNOW!) and friendly Southern hospitality.


I began my teaching career as a middle school special education teacher for seven years, then for 14 years I taught 8th grade ELA in Maine.


John and I have been married for 23 years and have two awesome children: Maxwell, 21 and Morgan, 17. We have a dog, Easton, who is a Maltipoo and two exotic shorthair cats, Mogwai and Gizmo.  Being new to SC, on weekends we enjoy exploring what Columbia has to offer ie; concerts, festivals, dining, music, USC sports, downtown, shopping, etc. We are always chasing new Giard Adventures!
