I am excited to be a part of the Leaphart Elementary family. Currently, I have over 19 years of teaching 3rd through 8th-grade science. I am a graduate of Newberry College where I earned a BS in Elementary Education and the University of South Carolina where I received my Master's degree in IMA Science Curriculum. I am currently a Ph.D. candidate at the University of South Carolina. My research focus is in the Teaching and Learning program with an emphasis on teaching science.  

My passion is teaching science and showing students how amazing our planet and universe are. Teaching students to question phenomena and develop research skills to investigate phenomena has always been my goal as an educator. 

I have been married to my husband for 8 years. We enjoy gardening and traveling the world.
