- 3rd Grade
I grew up in Columbia, but fell in love with the upstate when I started attending Clemson University. After a year of studying at Clemson I realized that my true passion was not only learning, but teaching. I graduated from Clemson with a bachelor's in elementary education in 2010 and later returned for a master's in school leadership in 2015. My husband, Andrew, and I enjoy sports, hiking, cooking, and traveling, and we are the proud parents of two very odd cats.
I spent the last six years teaching fourth grade at West Pelzer Elementary. During my time there I started both the boys and girls running clubs and was elected Teacher of the Year in 2015. Nothing can compare with the impact the students and teachers of West Pelzer had on my growth as a teacher.
I am so excited to begin my seventh year as a 3rd grade teacher at Lead! I can't wait to learn, grow, and succeed with our students! Let the adventures begin!
