I have been teaching in Florence School District One since 2006. My professional experience has been in Early childhood Montessori (three years) and Upper Montessori (4th-6th grade) for seven years, and now I am embarking on my third year in a traditional 4th grade classroom here at Delmae. I have an undergraduate degree from Coker College in Early Childhood education, with an add-on elementary certification. I have a Master's degree from Lesley University in ARTS integration, and I recently completed my Masters in Educational Administration from Coastal Carolina University. I am also Montessori certified through MACTE. I plan to continue working toward my Ed.S degree in elementary administration after I take this year off! I absolutely love teaching, facilitating and motivating students to achieve their goals through hard work, determination and collaboration. In my spare time (ha!) I am a mother to two beautiful children. My son is a senior at South Florence High School, and my daughter is a seventh grader at Southside Middle Schoool. I enjoy going to the beach, reading books for pleasure, working in my yard, doing DIY projects, and creating eclectic art. I also enjoy spending as much time as I can with my family.
I am looking forward to a wonderful school year filled with lots of fun and learning! Feel free to email me with any questions, concerns, or comments. Please allow up to 48 hours for a response. To schedule a conference, you may contact the school.
