7th & 8th Grade Science Teacher

I am a native of the Upstate and grew up in Williamston, SC.  I moved to Greenville after graduating from Lander University in 1998.  My degree was Elementary Education with an emphasis in Science.  I taught 5th, 7th, and 8th grade before staying home with my daughters.  While home with my children, I have always been an active volunteer in their schools.  The last 2 1/2 years I have been a regular substitute in various schools in Greenville County.  This has fueled my desire to return to the classroom full time.  This Spring I completed the requirements to add Middle Level Science to my degree!

My husband, Travis, works for Countybank.  We have 2 daughters Belle (age 14), Amelia (age 12) and 2 dogs (Wilsie and Sam).  Both girls are very active in sports and their school.  I enjoy reading, traveling, cooking, going to Barre 3, and spending time with my family and friends.

I am very excited to become a member of the Lead Academy family and a part of your child's education!
