I am very happy to be teaching my thirteenth year at River Springs Elementary School! I have taught second grade for ten years and first grade for two. My first career was in graphic design. I became a teacher in 2006 after graduating from USC with an MAT in Early Childhood Education as a career changer. 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!) and a new Brittany Spaniel puppy, Harley. My son Mitch is married and lives in Nashville, and my daughters Katherine and Shannon are both here in Columbia.
I know we are going to have another great year in second grade!
