Kindergarten is my love!  I have been teaching Kindergarten for 24 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 nineteen 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 so very happy to be back in the classrrom with my best friend and amazing assistant, Rona Sample.  We have worked together for 18 years at River Springs and are returning after a year in FIVE.  I am so happy to be back in the world I know and I am very excited about the possibilities for our children. It is an honor to teach in such a fine school district. We love working at River Springs and count our blessings everyday. I look forward to learning and growing with your children through this year.  Please feel free to email or call me anytime with any questions or concerns you may have.


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!
