I am excited to begin my 27th school year and to return to CESCA teaching 5th grade math and science. I have taught all grades from 3rd through 7th including intervention, regular, and gifted classes, but 5th grade is my favorite. I am a native of Sumter and live there with my daughter and husband, but I have ties to Camden and CESCA. My grandmother and her family are from Camden and "Blaney". My great-aunt and great-uncle both lived by CESCA on Laurens and were students at our former building over 70 years ago. My dad also attended 2nd grade at CES when his family moved back to Camden for a short time. I think it's neat I am teaching here now. In my free time, you will find me taking care of our 5 rescue cats (yes, 5!), cheering for my Carolina Gamecocks, and spending time with my family and friends.
