I am a native of Elloree, SC. I attended the public schools of Calhoun County. I graduated from the College of Charleston in Charleston, SC in 2006 with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education.  After college, I decided to continue my education through the University of Phoenix postgraduate program with a concentration in Curriculum and Instruction. I believe that I was born to teach and teaching is my passion. I have taught grades 3, 4, and 5 in various content areas. Each day I look forward to teaching and learning new things with my students. My future goals include becoming a National Board Certified teacher as well as focusing more in the area of curriculum and instruction in OCSD5.
