I am a first grade teacher at Blaney Elementary.  This is my third year teaching in Kershaw County.  I began teaching in Darlington County...first as a substiute teacher, then two years as an instructional assistant.  I recieved my MAT in Elementary Education from the College of Charleston.  When I graduated, I went back to Darlington County and taught first grade at the elementary school that I attended as a child.  After 4 and half year, I moved to the Columbia area.  I taught first and second grade at Windsor Elementary and Polo Road Elementary for 21 years.  I love Blaney and am exicited to begin the new school year.
