I grew up in Rock Hill. I received my Bachelors Degree from Presbyterian College and my Masters Degree from Winthrop University. This is my 10th year teaching. I have taught pre-K, K and 1st. First grade is by far my favorite! I love to watch the growth my students make each year. I have two daughters- Carlyle, who will be a freshman at Furman, and Laney, who will be a junior at Northwestern. I am a huge Carolina Panthers fan, love the beach, love to read mysteries and LOVE teaching 1st grade!
