Hello Stover Families!  I am honored to serve as the principal of Leslie Stover Middle School.  This is my 24th year in education.  I have served in administration at the high school, middle, and elementary levels seeing the continuation of education from pre k-12th grades.   I have served as principal in three schools in three different school districts serving rural, suburban, and urban students for 18 years.   I believe that all children can learn.  I am dedicated to ensuring this happens with every child every day.


I grew up in Nuremberg and Wurzburg, Germany.  As a military child, I attended DODDs schools, and was very fortunate to travel most of Europe and experience different cultures.  These experiences have shaped my perception of education and the world.


I received a BA in Music and Flute Performance, Master of Arts in Teaching, Master in Education Administration, and Education Specialist and Doctorate in Education Administration all from the University of South Carolina. In my free time I enjoy performing on flute and playing with the Palmetto Concert Band.


My greatest accomplishment is being the proud mother of three amazing sons.  


I am proud to be a part of the best team in education.
