I have spent the past 27 years as an elementary school teacher in grades 3-8. Of those years, I have spent the past 20 years as a third grade teacher in Darlington County School District. My previous 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 27 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 26 years and I reside in Hartsville. This will be my third year at Pine Tree Hill and I am truly looking forward to a great year getting to know and love everyone.
