I began teaching in 2001 with a Master's Degree from USC. A few years later, I received my National Board Certification and Gifted & Talented endorsement. This year begins my 20th year of teaching! I have taught all 4 major subjects, but Math continues to be my passion. Therefore, I am very excited to be taking on a new role at CIS this year teaching 6th grade Math.
At home, I have 3 amazing children. My oldest daughter graduated from Dutch Fork High, then Columbia College with a degree in accounting. I have another daughter attending 9th grade at Chapin High School who balances an all honors program with Chapin Varsity Cheer! My son, an avid sports fan, just finished 2 years at CIS and will now be attending 7th grade at Chapin Middle. I stay busy with all of their extracurricular activities, but also enjoy hiking, camping, and watching everything Gamecocks!
