Degrees and Certifications:
I graduated from Youngstown State University in 2004 with a degree in Early-Elementary Education. To pursue my career as a teacher, I relocated to North Carolina and taught in a Title One school. My first years of teaching were very eye-opening. The students and their families taught me more in those first years than I thought possible. The passion I have for teaching continues to grow with each year I am with the students. During my journey in N.C.. I met my husband and his two children. Love (and the military) brought us to South Carolina. I have been working in the district for 14 years. In 2012, I earned my Master's Degree in Instructional Accommodations for the Divergent Learner. The birth of my son in 2014 was a true blessing from God. I was fortunate to transfer to Blaney to be close to my son's daycare, and have the privilege to work within our community. Our family loves living in Elgin, and I am proud to work at Blaney Elementary School. Blaney is truly the heart of Elgin!!! I am honored and blessed to work with your child this year. If you need anything during the school year, please contact me via email, class dojo, or phone call.
