I was born in Evansville, Indiana.  My family moved to Tennessee when I was a sophomore in high school.  I attended college in Tennessee, where I received my BS. Degree in Education.  I taught for ten years in Regular Education then moved to Georgia.  I pursued a Masters of Education in Special Education.  I've been teaching over 28 years.  I've been teaching in South Carolina over the past nine years.  Throughout the years I've continued to use best practices and update my education by attending classes in South Carolina, Indiana, University of Kentucky and Tennessee.

I have been teaching at Port Royal Elementary over the past four years.  I enjoy teaching here and working with the students and staff.  My goal is to have a great school year and be of service to teach your students the things they need to know and help them to enjoy learning and continue to grow into happy and successful adults.

My husband and I live in Seabrook, SC.   I like traveling, cooking, making crafts, taking pictures and swimming.
