Welome to an exciting year of exploring new frontiers! I am excited to be a part of the Crossroads Intermediate School Family. Currently, I have 21 years of teaching science in grades 3 through 8th. My passion is teaching earth, geological, astronomical, and life sciences. I enjoy teaching students how amazing our planet and Universe are. My primary goal is to teach students how to observe, question, and develop scientific skills used to investigate phenomena. I am happily married to my husband Patrick Duggan. He is the culinary instructor for Lexington Richalnd 5's CATE Center. We enjoy traveling and exploring amazing locations of the world.
My educational journey began at Newberry College where I earned a B.S. in Elementary Education. Then I completed my Masters in Science Curriculum at the Universiy of South Carolina. 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.
