Hi Learning Lamb Parents,

I cannot wait to learn and grow with your children this year!  Kindergarten is such an amazing grade to teach.  You will get to see your child grow tremendously this year-academically and socially.  

This will be my 11th year teaching at Lake Murray Elementary School.  I am blessed to work with amazing students, teachers, and parents.  I grew up in Lexington/ Richland 5 and am so excited that I have been able to come back and teach in this amazing district.  I graduated from the University of South Carolina with an Undergraduate Degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education and with a Master's degree in Language and Literacy.  Go Gamecocks!!  I am also a National Board Certified teacher.  

When I am not at school or at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, shopping, going to church, watching movies, and going out on the lake.  I am married to my best friend, Jordan.  We have two dogs and two little boys.  Our sweet puppies are Marley and Addie Mae.  Jax is our four-year-old son and Brooks is two.  We enjoy spending our free time together!   

I am looking forward to a great year!!  Let me know if I can help you or your child in any way.
