Welcome to 4th grade! I am excited to be your ELA/SS teacher this year.
This will be my 15th year of teaching, having taught both fourth and fifth grade. I was born in South Carolina and graduated from the University of South Carolina, where I received my Master's Degree in Education. During college, I completed my teaching internship in District 5 and haven't left since.
My husband is also a teacher in our district. We have two children, Orly (9) and Hayes (4). In our free time, we love watching movies, spending time near the water or mountains, and cheering on the Gamecocks.
During this year, I hope to help your child grow as a passionate and independent thinker. I believe in a strong sense of community where children feel comfortable to take risks and are able to work together as a team. I look forward to a successful year with you and your child in 4th grade!
