  • Welcome Oakridge Elementary Family!
    I am a native of Clover and attended school in this very district. I attended the University of South Carolina and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education. Go Gamecocks! I also obtained my Masters degree in Literacy in 2014. I am married and have two precious boys, Brayden, 9 and Camden, 6.  We also have a Westie named Max. When I am not spending time with my family I enjoy singing at church, working out, and visiting my favorite place, the beach! 
    This year will begin my 15th year in education. I have taught first, second, and pre-k but I love teaching kindergarten. My goal is to build a strong foundation with your child through love, play, exploration, and academics. I feel each child is placed in my class for a reason and I promise to never take that for granted. I always aim to instill a love of learning in every child that will last for a lifetime!
    Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions at all!
