I am so excited to be starting another year at CRIS! I have been a middle grades educator for over 20 years, and I absolutely love working with sixth graders. The 2022-23 school year will mark my 11th year as an administrator, and my 3rd year as the principal of CRIS. Before coming to CRIS, I served as the Assistant Principal for Instruction at both Dutch Fork Middle School and Irmo Middle School as well as the English Language Arts Coordinator for District Five. I began my career as an educator, teaching 6th grade English, and spent 12 years as a classroom teacher.  When I’m not at work, I enjoy being a mom to my three children; two of whom are graduates of District Five and one who will be a senior this year. 


I am so proud to be a part of the CossRoad Intermediate School family and thrilled to work with all of our students, staff, and parents this year.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

I am excited about beginning my 19th year in education and my 19th year at CrossRoads.  I previously taught math for 15 years, so I am familiar with the needs of the students at this age and developmental level. Before my career as an educator, I served in the ARMY as a Military Police Officer.  My military experience afforded me opportunities to travel and meet people from different backgrounds and cultures. This experience provided me with discipline, organization, and attention to detail, which has played an important role in my job as an educator.  

I am excited to build new relationships with our rising 6th graders and can’t wait to see them grow as learners and as individuals.  

Education

I earned my Bachelor of Education as well as my Master of Education in Divergent Learning from Columbia College.  My certification in Educational Leadership and Administration is from Gardner-Webb University.

Interests

My interests include woodworking projects and refurbishing wood furniture.  I also enjoy working out and I enjoy the outdoors. I am a HUGE fan of Survivor, tennis, and volleyball.

I am excited to build new relationships with our rising 6th graders and can’t wait to see them thrive!
