I'm originally from Ohio, but I've been in South Carolina for the last 15 years, so I claim it as home. I taught Social Studies in Swansea at Sandhills Middle for 6 years. Then my family relocated to Fort Mill, SC where I taught SS for another 6 years. Upon our return to Columbia last year, I started teaching Gateway to Technology here at Irmo Middle. This year I'm making the transition back to Social Studies with virtual South Carolina History.
I have a super awesome 3 1/2 year old, two old dogs (Border Collie and Carolina Dog rescue) and a wonderful husband. We love taking hikes, going to the zoo (I love giraffes) and playing video games together. I also personally love coloring, sketching and crafting.
