    Principal I cannot believe this will be my seventh year at AMS. It has been a blessing and privilege to serve the Aynor community for six years. Prior to coming to Aynor, I was principal at Whittemore Park Middle in Conway for six years. I also served as an Assistant Principal at Loris Middle for four years before becoming a principal. I taught Math for 14 years (Conway MS, Conway HS and Carolina Forest HS) and coached for almost 20 years in the Conway community. I contribute my years in the classroom and on the athletic field to helping develop my skills to be able to lead such a wonderful group of teachers, students, staff and community members. 

    It is has been my goal to help AMS become one of the top schools in Horry County and South Carolina as we work together to prepare our students for careers and/or college readiness. We are fortunate to be a part of such a wonderful district and to implement the 1-1 PDL initiative for the fifth year. There are many advantages to our students being able to access digital content and advance their individual education in order to reach their maximum potential. As I tell our students frequently, the sky is truly the limit for what they choose to do and where they choose to go for their career. 

    I hope this year is the best school year ever, whether your child is a first-time middle schooler in 6th grade or a veteran 8th grader. Please know that my door is always open and I am only a phone call or email away. I will send out weekly email updates to keep everyone aware of the events and news at AMS. I look forward to getting to know you and your child.
