Hello Bullpup Families! I am honored to serve as a 4K teacher at PTH.  I am excited to embrace our 22-23 school year's theme of "We are ONE family with many stories" as 4K Busy Bees. This is going to be an exciting year as  we use Letterland program and  Big Day curriculum in 4K. There are 8 units that cover science, social studies, math, reading, and writing using skills in play and socialization.The units are 1) Ready for School, 2)My Family, 3) Our Community, 4) Awesome Animals, 5) Imagine It, Make It 6) Nature, 7) Growing Up Healthy, and 8) Moving On.

Born and raised in Columbia, S.C, I am a proud graduate of Dreher High School. I received an Associate Degree in Child Development, and  Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education from University of South Carolina, Columbia, and a Master Degree in Education- Integrated Teaching Through the Arts from Lesley University.  I have 35+ years in the field of education with varied experiences in the elementary classroom, including teaching 4K, K-1 Multiage, kindergarten through second grade with experience in Jasper County, Sumter County  & here in Kershaw County.

I am married to a retired administrator and we are the proud parents of two adult sons and seven beautiful grandchildren.

I am proud to be a BULLPUP and can't wait to see each of you  as we kick off the 22-23 school year!
