Kindergarten is my love! I have been teaching Kindergarten for 22 years now. However, I did not discover that calling until I had children of my own. I received a B.S. in Business Administration from USC and worked for awhile in Mortgage Lending After staying home with my children for a few years I decided that I really wanted to be in a classroom. I received my M.A.T. from USC and began teaching Kindergarten in Beaufort, SC. I have been teaching at River Springs for seventeen years now. I graduated a third time from USC in August of 2011 with an Educational Specialist degree in Language and Literacy as a Reading Specialist. I love teaching young children to read and write. It is truly my passion! I love River Springs and feel so blessed to work with such an amazing faculty and staff. This year I am a FIVE teacher for the district. This is my first experience as a virtual teacher. I have much to learn about this new world but I am very excited about the possibilities. It is an honor to teach in such a fine school district. I look forward to learning and growing through this year.
I have been married to Russell, my best friend, for the past THIRTY-SEVEN years. (WOW!) We have two wonderful sons. Chandler is 33 and a chef/musician. He lives with his wonderful family in Florida. My beautiful grandson, Jaxon, is 8 years old. My son Cameron is 30 and is a writer/pod caster, and an English teacher. He is married to the love of his life, . We are so blessed with two amazing, beautiful and talented daughters-in law! I live in Chapin, SC with my very handsome husband. I love to PLAY WITH MY GRANDBABY, read, cook, antique, and spend lots of time with my family. My faith, family and career keep my days very full. I love my summers when I can finally really PLAY WITH MY GRANDBABY, read for fun, hang' with my boys and just relax. Thanks for visiting with me and I hope that you have a great day!
