I have spent the past 28 years as an elementary school teacher in grades 3-8. Of those years, I have spent 20 years as a third grade teacher in Darlington County School District. For the past three years, I have taught 4th Grade at Pine Tree Hill Elementary. The other remaining years were spent in Clarendon County School District Two. I have dedicated my life to helping students achieve academic success in the early grades and building a strong foundation so that they may continue to be successful in the years to come. Some of my accomplishments include the following: a successful teaching career for the past 28 years, positively impacting the lives of students in regular and special education, Teacher of the Year candidate; impressive standardized test scores produced by my students consistently, longevity on the job, and dedication to the education profession. I hold a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Elementary Education, with a minor in Health Science, a Master of Education Degree in Reading and Writing Specialization, and a Master of Education Degree in Creative Arts in Learning. My husband of 27 years and I reside in Hartsville. This will be my first year at Bethune Elementary and I am looking forward to a great year!
