I am very happy to be teaching my sixteenth year at River Springs Elementary School! I have taught second grade for thirteen years and first grade for two. I am a career changer, my first career was in graphic design. I became a teacher in 2006 after graduating from USC with a Masters degree in Early Childhood Education. My husband and I are both originally from North Carolina, but his job moved us to Nashville, TN and then San Diego, CA before ending up here in Chapin in 2001.
I love being a teacher, and truly look forward to seeing your children each and every morning! I am blessed with a wonderful family- my husband, three grown children (who are all Gamecocks too!), a grandson Jack, and a Brittany Spaniel puppy named Harley. My son Mitch, his wife and son live in Nashville, my daughter Shannon just moved to Chattanooga, and my daughter Katherine is here in Columbia. I look forward to getting to know you and your child this year.
I know we are going to have another great year in second grade!
