It is an honor to serve as principal at Baron DeKalb (BDK) Elementary-A small school with a BIG heart where everyone excels! I am beginning my 30th year in education and my tenth year as principal at BDK. Before joining the BDK Family, I served as the assistant principal at Camden Elementary for six years. My professional teaching career began in 1988 at Irwin Avenue Open Elementary School in Charlotte, North Carolina. I returned home to Kershaw County in 1990 and I worked as the counselor for three elementary schools (BDK, Midway & Antioch, 1990-1992). I was also the counselor at Lugoff Elementary from 1992-1994. I left Kershaw County for a brief period and returned in 1997 to serve as the counselor at the Continuous Learning Center (CLC). I have also worked at the Management Alternative Middle School in Charlotte and at Shaw Heights Elementary in Sumter.
