Degrees and Certifications:
I am excited to begin 2021-2021 school year. This is is the beginning of my 31th year in teaching and my 27th year in Jasper County. Throughout my tenure in Jasper County, I have worked in many different roles. I have taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade and I am currently a 7th grade Social Studies teacher.
I have earned a Master's Degree, Bachelor's degree and numerous endorsements to add to my teaching certificate. I love to learn new things and believe that one should learn something new each day in order to be productive.
When I'm not teaching school, I enjoy baking, camping, and spending time with family. Three golden retrievers demand my time and give me a true understanding to the expression "the dog ate my homework." My dogs fill the empty nest my children left when they started their careers.
I believe all students can learn when they feel safe, supported, and encouraged through their struggle. I believe parents want the teachers who care and will help students as they transition from being a child to a young adult. Teaching is about building relationships, parents, and stake holders. I look forward to teaching this year and BELIEVE we will all experience SUCCESS!
