This is my first year of teaching at Stono Park Elementary School and my twentieth year overall. I have spent most of my career working with students and families in several Lowcountry area schools in both second and third grades. I am a graduate of Ball State University with a degree in Elementary Education, as well as, Concordia University where I obtained a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a minor in Mathematics.
Both of my children are of the fur baby persuasion and I love spending time with my pups, Baxter and Bailey. I am originally from Indiana, where my family still resides. Unfortunately, we do not get to visit as often as we’d like, but they are my strength and my heart.
Outside of school, I have a passion for all things nature related, in particular, hiking and biking while exploring new places. I also love reading, cooking, gardening and a great game of Candy Crush!
